WARNING: SPAM-SCAMS!!!There are companies who target inexperienced/hopeful writers, often approaching them through scam campaigns like this one on dA: http://laurythompson.deviantart.com/ . Almost 3000 identical messages left in a single day. Yeah, that's a LOT of GENIUS. There was another I found, fortunately banned already, by the same person.
Now, what this is is a scam to get you to enter a poetry competition. That's how they get your e-mail. Then you get a very pretty letter saying how WONDERFUL your poem is, and recieve all sorts of offers to let these sods publish you, for free. BUT IT ISN'T FREE. To obtain a copy of this publication (of which they do about 60 a year), in which your poem is stuffed in with thousands of others (you even have to PAY to have your poem printed on its own page) you have to spend BIG. Then they hit you with "opportunites" to buy a whole stack of other products, and even go to conferences. Now, I have read reports about these conferences and they, too, are a horrible rip-of
Poetry, Prose: Who Knows?Welcome to the first edition of this week's Project: Educate series dedicated to getting facts out there about the Literature gallery and community. As education is only effective if you start with the basics, we figured a brief review of which art forms the Literature gallery covers might be in order. First and foremost:
What is Literature?
Well, one can answer that question in any number of ways stemming from the very academic to the very pejorative, but I like to settle on something simplistic. Literature is art in the form of written expression. It usually (but not always) deals with a particular subject and often strives for an audience of interested and like-minded folk. So if you are using words as your artistic tools, then the Literature gallery is the gallery for you!
Are there different types of Literature?
Again, this question can become needlessly and quickly complicated. To avoid
Poetry.com: What YOU can do!THIS ARTICLE IS NOT JUST RELEVANT TO WRITERS. Poetry.com also scams photographers and artists through websites like Picture.com – which is ALSO A SCAM.
As hopefully many of you know already, Poetry.com are scammers. They rip people off intentionally. (There is more information about Poetry.com in the links at the bottom of the news article.)
Recently, they have even attempted to invade deviantART. They’ve spammed people with notes and comments, doing whatever they can to encourage people to submit poems to their contest in which everyone seems to achieve at least second place. The supposed prize for this contest is 100k. Some people, no doubt, are going to fall for their scam because of it all of the spamming they have done on Poetry.com. They’re going to be so delighted that they’ve placed in the contest that they, or their parents, will give away money because of it.
That brings me to the point of this news article: Please, help heighten awareness of th
Why Aspergers/Autism is 95% BS [mini-rant] *WARNING; THE WORD 'FUCK' IS USED MORE TIMES THAN I CAN COUNT.
That's right, Ima say it, someone's gotta say it. It's BULLSHIT most if not all of the time, and I'm pretty certain it's a modern day scam that specifically targets concerned parents' of youth who often classify as the 'unpopular kids.' It became concerning to me (honestly) ever since I had to complete an essay on the condition(s) <[just out of curiosity] for a psychology course last semester, there is NO WAY IN HELL so many people should be diagnosed with aspergers/autism when in fact they're literally just either;

Prison bird. Tom x Reader Lemon ( R18+)it's been 6 months since your Boyfriend, Tom, was sent to prison. he's reason for being there was, well, your friend, Brittany slipped him something and he went around down telling everyone to kneel. During his time, Tom got to read over some books, but they didn't have anything good, like Shakespeare, so Tom would lift weights in his cell. might as well look good when he see's you again. oh he could see you now, a pile of mush swooning at his feet. Tom would have to be cautious of the other inmates, especially in the showers. he slipped up once and there and he wasn't going to let that happen again. At the end of his sentence, tom looked at his new harden abs and arms, he had to admit, he looked good. Tom got escorted down the long grey hall way as the other inmates gave him cat calls as he strutted down. after checking out, it was time to check you out. that night, you spent your nights like the others for the past 6 months, eating alone watching Marvell movies. you couldn't stop squ

Tips For Writing Flash Fiction
by Stephen R. Smith with excerpts by Kathy Kachelries
In order to improve as a writer, you need feedback. It's difficult to write something the size of a novel, and equally difficult to carve out the time required to read one and provide any sort of meaningful critique on it. This severely handicaps the feedback loop so important for the aspiring writer.

This isn't the first time I cleared the mess
I found your red doll with a button eye loose
Half-blind, she relied on strange means and measures
Her futures weighed on balance scales
Her past silently gazes
As the future looms ahead
There is nothing left to fear
Our direction now is clear,
As the sweet soil beckons us back to bed,
we are thinking still of dancing by mid-summer's setting sun
In the evening hours, we evoke the shadows of the past.
Last night the stars hid away
A billion billion diamond eyes winking
