I'm a Lit Admin at #SeniorSelections!
"SeniorSelections stands to feature premier artwork from the deviantART community through weekly features from each gallery category."
Basically, it is a group of senior members who are going to showcase their favorite picks from around the deviantART galleries every week. I'm part of the literature team, along with thetaoofchaos.
I am accepting suggestions!
I am accepting suggestions for Literature only. I will accept any form of literature except Scripts (sorry, I just don't know enough about them to feel comfortable featuring them to the community). Here are things I look for:
Strong, concrete imagery. Abstractions turn me off.
Intelligent structure and formatting.
A clear, well-developed theme, message, or story.
I especially enjoy socio-political, human nature, and Eastern styles. I'm not as likely to enjoy romance (unless it is very well written), fantasy, or fixed forms like the sonnet. But please DO send me anything you think I might enjoy.
Clear, concise language use that relies on concrete imagery.
Natural sounding dialogue.
An interesting plot or well-developed character (bonus points for both).
I prefer reading sci-fi/sci-fantasy, satire, non-fiction (especially autobiography and memoir), and comedy. I am unlikely to sit through high fantasy or romance. But again, do send me anything you think I may enjoy!
Extra special bonus points if you find good prosetry!
Send me a note with a thumb or link to the deviation you're suggesting. Please title your note: "SS Suggestion" or something to that effect.
Please only send your suggestion to ONE person on the SeniorSelections team.
One thumb or link per note, please. It helps me stay organized.
Please feel free to suggest simultaneously to other feature groups such as DailyLitRecognition.
I will respond to all suggestions as soon as I have time to read them. If you do not hear from me within a couple weeks, please feel free to send me a poke.
You can include a blurb about why you feel a piece deserves to be featured, but it is not necessary. Truly good literature speaks for itself.
If you have questions, please leave a comment on this journal.
