The Literature Community ExperimentThis is a typical example of a BeccaJS shower pondering! The idea of this is to try and bring together as many people as possible all in one journal, but not for the sake of making a big number, but to encourage interaction and share useful tidbits. We often say the "literature community" has drifted apart over the past few years and this is just one attempt to try get people to come back together. It's a little hippy, perhaps a far-fetched idea, which is why I am calling it an "experiment". This could be successful and could be a complete fail- only you guys and your efforts can decide its fate!The Literature Community Experiment2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

Supporting Mental Health OnlineThe IssueSupporting Mental Health Online4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
You see a post from someone you only know online, or don't know at all, that sounds like this person is in distress. The most common is, of course, "I want to kill myself," but it could range anywhere from being overburdened with school to having trouble dealing with grief to, well, anything.
The following steps are some general guidelines for when you're not really sure what to do. Of course, if it's someone you know, use your better judgement. These are by no means rules to live by.
1. You come first
It may sound a bit callous, but watching your own mental health is important. If you're in a bad place, do you think you will have the bandwidth to help someone else? You don't want to end up like Jack in this scene from '30 Rock.'
Remember that someone who is struggling with their mental health may not have the capacity to approach the problem rationally. (How many completely avo

This series will take place on the last Sunday of the month. This month we take a look at:
neurotype is a Community Volunteer for the Literature Community.
VertigoArt: Thank you for allowing me to take up a little bit of your time and interview you so we can get to know a bit more about you. First can you tell me about you, personally? Tell me something that no one else knows.
neurotype: That no one else knows? Oh man that is a long list. I mean, I've done so many dumb things...I know a couple of people who may have figured this out, but if you get me up to like four drinks (just past tipsy) I get really excited about pointless intellectual debate. Or discussions about postmodern photography.
Who Are the Lit CVs?Who Are the Lit CVs?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It's a hard thing to do, but I managed to track down all FOUR of our current Literature Community Volunteers. That's right. There's four of them. In case you've been under a rock lately, Nichrysalis and neurotype were recently upgraded to CVs.
And I had the grand privilege of chatting with each of them. I thought it might be nice to get to know them a little better and find out why they joined the Community Relations team and why they've stayed.
Why did you decide to apply to be a Literature CV?
BeccaJS said, "Okay we actually have to take the delorian back to 2007 when I first applied to be a GM for literature. Then 2008, and 2009 where I whinged at $Moonbeam13 to be one and it never quite happened. Then between 2009-10 I kind of chilled out a bit and got on with some projects before being asked to join the MN@ team and then

You wake up, go get some breakfast, open your laptop to check your mail, facebook, and DeviantArt, and you notice that your inbox is suddenly flooded with messages. What on earth just happened? Well, you got a DD. It's time to celebrate! Your artwork is being recognized as worthy of being featured to the entire DeviantArt community, how incredible is that?! It is quite incredible indeed, however, some of the things you might have to deal with because of this Daily Deviation might not be so awesome.

Joan Miró Against Painting
Joan Miro Homage
April 20 marks the birthday of Joan Miró, one of the most important modernist painters of all time.
Miró was born in Barcelona, and strongly identified with his Catalan and Spanish roots throughout his career. He traveled to and from Spain frequently throughout the course of his life, even though he was briefly exiled during Franco’s rule.
One of the defining features of Miró's career was his refusal to associate full
Collection: Twelfth NightCollection: Twelfth Night4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Twelfth Night is the Christian festival marking the end of the Christmas season. In ancient times, it also meant that the world, upside down since Halloween, is finally turned right side up for us to begin our new year. But, more or less importantly, depending on your personal fervor for religion or world literature, it is also the title of a rollicking comedy by William Shakespeare. Written around 1601, it displays Will’s tendency to be a tad ahead of his time, featuring as it does a Countess falling in love with another young woman (albeit disguised as a boy) long before same–sex marriage coming into vogue.

Photography and other visual representations of concert events are a tricky proposition.
Fans of the music aren’t looking for, nor needing, much more than a souvenir of the evening filled with their favorite sounds.

Tilda Swinton has always been more types of wildly creative artist than “only” an actress. As part of a live performance art installation for the Serpentine Gallery in London, she was displayed in a glass box not much bigger than herself, doing nothing but occasionally sleeping. She’s well–known in fashion circles for her work with designers specializing in androgynous styles of attire. She starred in the art–house film “Orlando,” based on the Virginia Woolf novel, in which she switches gender half way through the time–tripping story. Tilda is now known mostly as an Oscar–winning actress in main
