This Week's Features
Hello all! I bring to you this week's roundups
Please give these pieces a read, and share some love!
Thank you for your patience in waiting! The last week or so has been a bit hectic
In case you didn't see our update from last time: We will be renewing Super Group Status (Once I've secured work from home employment). So don't mind the drab appearance in the meantime And one last thing
If you recall, I did a poll a bit ago asking if you all would be interested in some kind of NaPo collaboration event. Enough people expressed interest, so I am here to announce that we WILL be doing a fun NaPo Collab event with NaPoWriMo
So you're probably wondering how this is going to go? Let me explain!NaPoWriMo Collaboration:
For those who are not familiar, NaPoWriMo stands for National Poetry Writing Month. It is a writing-marathon event held yearly in April where you are tasked with writing 30 poems in 30 days! We have a group on dA specifically for this event that is ran by yours truly
So, how does that relate to us over here? Well, I want to promote and celebrate poetry (and NaPo) in general by adding to our Weekly Round-Ups.
So! Any member of this group who submits a piece (or pieces) for NaPoWriMo 2020, will automatically have those pieces be included in the weekly round-ups for the entire month of April. How will that work?
1) You will need to join the group NaPoWriMo
for the month of April (or for as long as you are wanting to post deviations) So if you only wanna submit a few pieces, and then leave -- you're more than welcome to do it that way
Just ensure that you've sent us the deviations first before doing so lol
2) You will need to say in your writers/artists comments section that the piece is for NaPoWriMo 2020 and what Poem/Day it is. Just putting the icon (
) also works. Most people do something like this:
Day 6. etc
Each Week, for every week in April, I will have a section in the Weekly Round Ups dedicated to those who are submitting to Napo. You can choose up to 3 pieces each week to have included in that section
Note, this is not to take the place of Weekly Round-Ups, those will still be happening. These will just be included in those journals to showcase people who are participating
To have your NaPo pieces be included, you will need to note THIS group (not NaPoWriMo
) with your 3 pieces that you want included. It doesn't have to be 3, or always 3. Just a max of three each week. Below are the deadline dates you will have needed to have noted us by to be included for that Weeks NaPo specific Round-Up:
I hope to see some of you guys posting over there. NaPo is a really fun event, and it would be cool to show everyone what you all are writing
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask here or note me personally if you need more assistance.
Now! Onward to the Round-up
For though the world lies sunk in blackest night
While still we live, and still we sing, there's light
A great piece that gives a glimmer of hope despite current events. It is both honest and uplifting, something we all need these days.
maybe you can only
be an ocean
for one person
A lot of this piece hits at different emotions and makes me think when you've been reduced to a shallower version of yourself. Or when you WERE whole, once -- for one person. Until you were stretched thin. There is a lot to unpack in this one, but it is well worth the read.
Fate made her ruthless,Community News
but the wreckage made her remarkable.
This piece gets right to the heart of the matter, even in so few words.
