Writers of the Revolution began as the Featured Members project in 2010. As an admin team, we're thrilled to be able to feature so many talented writers, but we started to feel that the Feature Member blogs were missing something. We asked ourselves, is this project really displaying the values that we uphold as a group? High quality writing is certainly a large part of our goals and collective identity, but it wasn't enough. We wanted to focus more on the more crucial part of theWrittenRevolution and the deviantART literature community: the deviants who give back to the rest of us in the form of critiquing other works and providing writing resources such as tutorials and guides to publication.

:eager: We still feature a writer, but we're expanding the feature to include deviants who have shared their talents and passion for writing in a different way - who have added to the vibrancy and quality of the community.

The door is open to more changes in the future; if you have ideas, feel free to let us know! :salute:
ALSO, did you know you can write your own feature? We're more than eager to receive your suggestions and your own features! Send a note and we'll give you the template, or just write it yourself and we'll do the formatting for you. Let's see who you would write about! :eager:

Right now, no. We're about to start thinking of stuff to do during Fall/winter, though. During Summer all of our admins are busy so we're less active, but we're about to kick ourselves back up at full strength. :thumbsup:
