Hi guys! I would just like to share with you a list of groups that you should definitely have a look at to become more involved in the literature community and develop your skills as a writer!

Firstly, I’d just like to share with you a new group which would be great to join to help with your creativity and gaining more exposure on your account.


dA-WritersRevolution is a new group willing to host literature writing contests to give you a flair of creativity, gain more credible acknowledgments on your work, and even gives you a chance to win prizes!

Not only that, but with a new range of gallery folders to select from to increase your popularity, and a refreshing start on building a community of writers which you can expand upon, so join dA-WritersRevolution today! :D

Other exceptional groups to join as a writer!


CRLiterature is a central part of the literature community, which showcases literature features and daily lit deviations, interviews with established authors and self-independent writers, and articles, tutorials and FAQs for new writers and for writers wanting to improve.


Authors-Club is a renowned group that allows its members to communicate, critique deviations and showcase their own work in their chatroom, and suggestions of pieces of literature to be featured. They also provide helpful info in the FAQs and tips to new members and writers, and this group makes an immense impact on the writing community. I highly recommend that you join, or at least watch, this group, for the tremendous amount of work that they do!


Expose-Lit is a wonderful group to help people who feel out-of-the-loop, in terms to the writing community. Not only that, but they also host competitions, forums, critiquing, and info on daily deviations, and articles on how to improve your writing and how to go about meeting established writers.

This group teams up each writer with a mentor, where you can get in-depth advice, personal to you, on your deviations and you can also bounce ideas with them for your upcoming works, and your mentor can help you with works-in-progress. This is such a hard-working group, so check it out!
