DD Suggestion Guidelines

Sun Aug 5, 2018, 8:48 PM
Greetings from BlackBowfin.  I'm now a Community Volunteer for the Literature side of DeviantArt.  Selecting written works to feature as Daily Deviations is a major component of that role.  While I do my best to search for standout work, there's no doubt that many quiet treasure nooks get overlooked.  I would greatly appreciate your assistance with scouting for and unearthing awesome deviations.  Below you'll find the general info/guidelines and, below that, my personal preferences.

General DeviantArt Daily Deviation FAQs Answered Here
Things like.......
What is a Daily Deviation?
Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?
How do I know who has received a Daily Deviation... and when?
What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?

You can submit literature to any current lit CV, but please only suggest a work to one CV at a time.  Here's the current lineup:
BlackBowfin's guidelines
akrasiel's guidelines
BeccaJS' guidelines
squanpie's guidelines

How can I suggest a deviation to you?
Simply send me a note with a thumbnail of the piece with 'DD suggestion' as the subject line.  One or two sentences why you like the piece is helpful, but not necessary.

General Guidelines
:bulletblack: Deviants can’t receive a DD if they have had one in the last 6 months.
:bulletblack: Deviants who have been inactive for longer than a month are ineligible.
:bulletblack: Deviations that are part of a current contest are ineligible. You can suggest them after the contest has closed and the winners have been announced.
:bulletblack: If a deviation uses a preview pic or embedded image, it must be properly credited in the artist’s comments in order to be eligible.
:bulletblack: Self-suggestions are welcome. Promoting your work is a necessary skill for authors!

Personal Leanings
:bulletblack: My personal preferences lean toward poetry, but I will also gladly feature prose too.
:bulletblack: Sorry, but I am only able to feature works written in English.
:bulletblack: As far as fanfic goes, odds are that I don't follow its origins.  So, a work has to stand on its own without previous knowledge about its fandom.
:bulletblack: Technical quality is important, but so is the "heart and soul" of a written work.... that which lives and breathes beneath its words.
:bulletblack: I like writing that challenges my senses and preconceived notions.  I'm thrilled when I read something and, although it's nothing like I would normally write or seek out, it imprints an unshakable something of itself on me.

Cool. :)

Does someone else handle the fanfic area, or is that you as well?

I just added a fanfic note.  You can check the other CVs' guidelines (linked in the journal) for their personal policies.  I don't follow too much fanfic, but if a work stands on its own without me knowing the origin, I'd be fine with it.

Thank you for submitting your guidelines now. Your last "bullet" in Personal Leanings made me thinking :)
I will see if I am going to find something in this direction for you (if this person have not already had a DD within 6 months)....

EDIT: (*I will have to wait a bit with the suggestion. Said person had already a DD in May.*)

Haha, yeah that 6 month rule is a kicker, but definitely necessary. :)
