Q: Do you accept literature in foreign languages?
A: We most certainly do.

Q: What is "Theme of the Week"?
A: The Themes are simply one broad idea put out every Monday. It is only to help people with inspiration, or just for fun.

Q: Is "Theme of the Week" a contest?
A: No. It's sole purpose is to help provide inspiration. There are no winners.

A: Yes.

Q: Regarding "Theme of the Week", are we supposed to submit them in a specific folder?
A: There is a "Theme of the Week" folder, but you do not have to submit your work there. For example, if you write a poem inspired by a Theme, you may submit it to "Theme of the Week" folder or to the "Poetry Free/Blank Verse" folder. Same goes with any other type of writing.

A Challenge is meant to challenge your skill as a writer, it is meant to push you into doing something you wouldn't originally do. Above all, it is meant to be fun.

Some things just get you pumped up, excited. There are always ways for each person to get that sense of adrenaline, the rush of excitement in the heat of the moment. There are people known as "thrill-seekers" simply because they're a bit reckless, but then there are those who truly dare to do the most thrilling, blood-pumping things imaginable. But with how many actions and experiences can get a person thrilled, what tale will you tell?

Season 5 will be coming soon, and there's also a poll for you all to try out! You all have an awesome day!

Hello fellow deviants.
I’m new to DeviantArt and this group. I just wanted to say thank you in advance to all of you who have shared you talents with us and that I look forward to reading as many works of art as I can.
If you like, I can be a gentle critic. I look at a work from every angle I can to be able to offer up whatever help my mind comes up with. I may not be a professional writer (Yet), but I believe I have a decent ear for the written word and would love to help.
Myself, I write adult thrillers. By “adult” I do not mean simplistic porn. I love to explore ways to express the passion of lovers in a way that helps the reader imagine the feel of every gentle caress, the sensual warmth of an embrace and the driving desire as the surrounding world vanishes behind a veil of passionate intimacy. All this while developing fully fleshed out characters and building a story that provides the reader something to invest in.
I’ll close for now and hope that each of you find the fullest joy in your unique talents.
