[the written] revolution |ˌrevəˈlo͞oSHən |
1. a dramatic and wide-reaching change in the way something works or is organized or in people's ideas about it.
2. an auspicious movement dedicated to the evolution of writers and their various distinct crafts through a cycle of community-based motivation, critique and improvement.

Group Rules

theWrittenRevolution is a critique group. We do many activities, most of them are centred around giving and receiving constructive criticism. To submit to our gallery, you must first of all:

  • write some feedback questions in the Artist's Comments of the deviation you want to submit, and critique a deviation in our gallery.
theWrittenRevolution exists to give our members criticism to improve their work, and so this is the most important rule! There are a few others, of which we give you here a brief overview (which doesn't really mean you shouldn't read the complete Rules and FAQ linked below and in the blog on the right-hand side of this page ;P):
  • "Prose" and "Poetry" gallery have a 1500 word limit, "Longer Works" and "First Chapters/Prologues" folders 3000;
  • you must show us the critique you wrote on someone else's work in our gallery (it must be written in the last week);
  • We unfortunately only accept deviations in English, and only ones without excessively mature content;
  • We only accept, as chapters submissions, the first chapter (or a prologue). We don't accept fanfiction.

Please read our complete Rules and FAQ blog here for a more extensive, detailed explanation of how things work of feel free to send us a note. :note:
