Community DD Projects!
This one is for Literature. You can find more information about the project (and how to make your own!) in these two Lit CV journals:
When the CVs started posting journals for this project, I became SO, SO excited. I mean... For one day (or journal, OR several I guess if you're branching out and taking on multiple features) you get to "play" as a CV. Sort of. I mean, you know...you at least are given the chance to show what YOU would feature. (obviously CVs do MORE than set DDs)
OF COURSE, this doesn't mean you CAN'T feature things ALL THE TIME. You totally should! Use your journal--it's a great place to host the artwork YOU love and work to promote others in their craft. It's a good way to give back--and will help out your karma!
For this feature, I stuck to a theme of sorts. See if you can figure out
Free Verse judging completed! Your winners are..Before I announce the winners, I would like so send a sincere thank you to everyone who participated, either by judging, competing, or donating. Being the first contest I’ve ever hosted on Deviantart, I did not expect the giant response it got and I owe all of my adulation to you. I want to sincerely apologize for taking so long to judge. Next time, the process will be much more streamlined and be much quicker.Free Verse judging completed! Your winners are..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who did not place, please do not be discouraged. As you can see, there were some incredible poems submitted and choosing the winners for this contest took a tremendous amount of time and energy. Just because you did not place this time doesn’t mean you won’t next time. Several poems that didn’t place would win other literature contests I’ve seen. Remember that.
So, without further ado, here are your winners:

My deviantART StoryIt’s deviantArt’s 14th birthday! As part of the birthday celebration activity, here is my journal summarizing my experience as a deviant. I chose deviations from my gallery that mark significant points in my journey as a deviant, although it was a bit hard to choose just five.My deviantART Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Although being able to share artwork, ideas, and experiences here has been great, the best part of it has been all of the people that I’ve met. It’s been awesome meeting all of my watchers, watchees, and friends, helping and being helped, and just generally assimilating into the community. It’s really great when dA becomes like a neighbourhood for you, when you can explore groups and pages, and recognize deviants’ IDs like you would their actual faces. The feeling of belonging here is truly amazing. In addition, the exposure to so many different types of artwork, some which I never knew existed, has inspired me to broaden my proficiency beyond just writing. Because of th

I've been given the opportunity to read the part as telsa for chromeantennae in his amazing series of work. Please, if you haven't read the pieces before, do it now. If you don't feel like reading the telsa portion, why not listen to this playlist instead? All of his pieces are in order from first published to most recent deviation.
I hope you guys like my readings. I've been trying to improve.
Anyway, on with the feature!

When first stumbling upon deviantArt, whether 5 months or 5 years ago, we decided to join because we wanted to share our art. We wanted our work to be seen, to be appreciated, to be understood. However, it can be a long and difficult journey from obscurity into the spotlight. Many newcomers and even long-time deviants are sometimes overwhelmed and discouraged by a seeming lack of interest and/or exposure for their work. After all, that's what dA is for, right? Not necessarily - the answer to that question is a bit more involved than a simple "yes" or "no".
Society in general has become used to instant gratification. Want the new album by your favorite artist? With the click of a mouse, you've got it! Need to get in touch with your cousin who's moved to Italy? It's easy -- just Skype! The college you want to attend is across the country? No problem, they offer online courses!
You may be wondering how this is relevant to dA. Well,
