June Fan Fiction ContestUPDATE! Our winners!
Welcome back! This month's contest theme may be a bit of a challenge: write a fan fiction from a second person point of view!
For clarification, in second person point of view (POV) the narration is told through the reader's perspective, using the personal pronoun, "you."
Most stories are told from first person (where the narrator is telling their own story, using the pronouns "I" and "me") or third person (the narrator observes the characters, and refers to them as "he/she/them/etc.") person points of view. Second person point of view is the least used in fiction writing, although it is more common in non-fiction. It is considered the more difficult POV to use well, especially in fiction. Some examples of this style are Jay McInerney's Bright Lights, Big City, and Sesame Street's There's a Monster at the End of This Book by Jon Stone. This style is frequently used in interactive f

Contest! Create Your Own DLR Feature! - CLOSED This contest is over! Judging will now commence!Contest! Create Your Own DLR Feature! - CLOSED1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
DailyLitRecognition is moving along at a nice pace – naturally, that means it’s time for a contest! During one of our chat events, some members and admins talked about a little idea of mine, and we’ve refined the concept further in the DLR backroom; I’m very excited about this idea, because it isn’t one I’ve ever seen before, and I know people will take it interesting places!
Your mission is to create a mock anthology/ DLR feature around a theme of your choice. A minimum for four, maximum of five pieces is required. But that’s not all – you must also explain why you chose those pieces, and how they fit together as part of your theme. There are, however, a few caveats:
- Only one piece may be your own, if you so desire. This is not a requirement, but an option.
- All of your chosen pieces must be from different authors.

Yes to all three!
