Daily Deviations

Honored 2 Have Gotten DD Stamp by Mirz123

Daily Deviations are awarded by community volunteers to exceptional artwork. I am honoured to have received four of these features to date.

You can suggest something for a Daily Deviation by sending a thumb to the CV in charge of the gallery it has been posted in. To see who is responsible for each gallery click here. A deviant can only get one DD in any six month period, and some CV's have additional criteria so check out their profiles before you suggest!

Review Corner

My Reviews

"Elizabeth's work displays a beautiful modernicity; she can take two contrasting ideas and combine them to make something fresh and innovative. She knows how to make language new again and her work is always exciting and inventive."--KathrynODriscoll
Star + Dangles Divider (PurBlu) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

"=TwilightPoetess's work is sharp, observant, and gut-wrenchingly honest. With her words she manages to take the ideas that we've all become accustomed to and turn them on their heads, creating something brand new; no matter what she is writing about, she manages to craft intact worlds that are always staggeringly unique."--aprilwednesday
Star + Dangles Divider (PurBlu) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

"=TwilightPoetess is a name you should recognize, if not for her writing then for how active she is in the literature community. So if you only know her for the second thing, you should really meander over to her gallery and pursue its many surprises, from poignant haikus to nonfiction to pretty much anything."--SilverInkblot
Star + Dangles Divider (PurBlu) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

"Elizabeth's writing is like going outside and taking a breath of fresh air; the metaphors are wonderfully imaginative, and you never know where she's going to take you next. Her poetry is anything but cliche, and in each one, she has created something intimate and special, like a link between her and the reader."--DrippingWords
Star + Dangles Divider (PurBlu) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

"The one thing that stands out in =TwilightPoetess's gallery is a variety of quality works. One of the very few deviants who I feel comfortable calling skilled at both prose and poetry. She also is a valuable contributor to the Literature Community with her critiques and group contributions."-- TarienCole
Star + Dangles Divider (PurBlu) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

"Elizabeth's poetry should be compared with the changing seasons: the warmth and comfort of Autumn losing itself to the cold ice snaps of Winter, Winter losing its chill to Spring's breath of new life. Her poetry is so full of tastes and textures and old-images reborn, I can see them across my mind as if they were a Van Gogh. She sometimes starts at a point where I don't know where she's going, but, by the end, I have the 'oh, perfect' moment, and that's how any reader can tell she's a brilliant poet. Check out her gallery!!"--travelgirlxx
Star + Dangles Divider (PurBlu) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

"=TwilightPoetess has a kindhearted spirit that is infectious and delightful. To speak with her but a moment in chat, through comments, or even a note is a charming pleasure. A dedicated writer, she produces constant, quality poetry and prose almost every day. Each piece is original from anything else you'll see on dA and more often than not is inspired by a recent project. So not only is she immensely creative, but dedicated to supporting her community as well. I had the recent pleasure of casting her as a murderess in one of #dANightsOfMystery Murder Mystery Parties. If I didn't already think her amazing - I certainly do now. She blew us all away with her spontaneity and character development. That's a writer for ya! A talented and genuinely amazing one."--OfOneSoul

Follow Me to DLR!

Thu Apr 17, 2014, 8:49 PM

Otherwise known as :icondailylitrecognition: / :iconlitrecognition:, the new and (hopefully!) improved DLD!

DailyLitRecognition is a community based effort to bring the writers of deviantART to the foreground through daily articles. 

I am a SWING ADMIN, which means I will be taking suggestions for both poetry AND prose.
I am also going to be interviewing people, and probably lending a hand with other things as they come up.

Suggestion Guidelines:

:bulletblue: One (1) suggestion per note, please.
:bulletblue: Please DON'T send the same suggestion to multiple admin! 
:bulletblue: Self-suggestions are welcome!
:bulletblue: Please include a THUMB of the piece you're suggesting, and a short (one or two sentence) description of the piece/why you think it should be featured.
:bulletblue: DLR DOES NOT accept chaptered works or fan fiction.

Things I look for in pieces I feature:

:bulletblue: Leave me thinking
:bulletblue: Make me reconsider things in different ways
:bulletblue: Explore or challenge (life/ideas/cliches/whatever)
:bulletblue: Hit (or pull on) my emotions 
:bulletblue: Put a unique twist on old ideas
:bulletblue: Have a new or intriguing format

If you'd like to see some of the pieces I've featured in the past, go here: Accepted DLDs

PLEASE REMEMBER, DLRs ARE NOT DDs.  Suggestions for Daily Deviations should be sent to GrimFace242, neurotype, and SingingFlames (our resident fan fiction CV)!

Kind Words from Lovely People

Hey there. :wave:

I need to say that you have made my time on dA the best it could possibly be. You've done too much for me, and you've shown me how much of a wonder you really are. I didn't know that deviantART could change my life, but you've shown me that too. You're such a kind and amazing human being, and I love you for everything that you are. Thank you so much for being awesome. :love: --Aerode

TwilightPoetess pretty much saved my life. When I was feeling really down, i knew there was someone I could talk to, and instead of turning me away and telling me that she had her own problems to deal with, she listened. I've come across some lovely deviants on deviantART, but TwilightPoetess is at the top of the list. --Anonymous compliment on DeviantArt Compliments

Our Friendly Neighborhood Lit CVs

Daily Deviations

Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

A Daily Deviation is a daily staff feature selected from the galleries here on deviantART.

The selecting person may be a Community Volunteer or a Staff member. To see which Community Volunteer specialises in which gallery click here

A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by this select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large. 

Individual staff/volunteers may show different levels of activity which may lead to certain genres or types of artwork to be chosen more often than others. If you believe that a certain type of artwork is being overlooked or under-represented please feel free to offer suggestions by noting $Moonbeam13. NOTE: Anyone can suggest a daily deviation and self-suggesting is not only allowed, but encouraged.


Bullet; Blue There is a "6-month rule" which means an artist cannot receive another DD if they have had one in the last 6 months.

Bullet; Blue Daily Deviation selectors are limited to a maximum of one selection per day. This has been put in place to focus on quality vs quantity. 

Bullet; Blue If there is no one assigned to an area you want to suggest a DD to, please note $Moonbeam13 with your DD suggestion.

Bullet; Blue Please only suggest to only ONE person, do not send the same suggestion to multiple people - it causes great confusion - Thank you!</ol>
