To spur activity, we've decided to hold a contest for all members.

The theme will be Autumn. All submissions must fit the theme in some form.

:bulletblue: Poetry and prose submissions accepted, but they will be judged separately.
:bulletblue: Only one submission per participant.
:bulletblue: There will be two different folders for poetry and prose.
:bulletblue: All submissions must be submitted to the correct folder. (Links provided bellow.)
:bulletblue: All participants who submit to an incorrect folder will be given one chance to correct the mistake before their submission is disqualified.
:bulletblue: No submission (prose or poetry) may exceed 1000 words, according to this  word counter. No exceptions. 
:bulletblue: Submissions must follow these guidelines or they will not be accepted into the contest folder.

Submit Prose Entries Here :: Submit Poetry Entries Here

Deviations will be judged by your WriteRoom Admin Coalition and Roomies! We will be judging the quality of your work, which will include grammar, spelling, and originality.

Prizes of premium memberships, journal features, points, critiques, artwork and llamas from various folks will be awarded for Best in Poetry and Best in Prose. Honorable mentions will also be featured. Winners will also be featured by the group.
(Prize donations still being accepted! You can donate a prize and still participate. More about prize donation:… )

Deadline is midnight October 15th EST. What time is that for me? The folder will be closed at that time.

I have announced the running contests on my group's page and giving each one a full page in the group's journal by copying the whole information:


two of our affiliates are holding a contest in a parallel period of time. You can take the details from the descriptions on the latest two journal pages.

:iconwriteroomies: is holding a "Writing Contest: Poetry and Prose"

:icontheriansonda: is holding a "Contest: Spirits of Fall"

Details and rules, subject and prizes see on the mentioned journal pages.

You are invited to join our affiliates' contest if you would like. If you have any questions, please do ask.


Hope that is o.k.

Hello! I'm the founder of #The-Writers-Study, a new group here on dA. Would you like to affiliate, as to give our members access to your group?

I didn't want to spam all of my chapters in the Novels folder for the short novel I'm working on, so I just put chapters 1 & 2 in there. I hope that is alright. I'll keep the rest of the chapters in my own gallery, unless there's no problem with putting them all on here.

Would it be possible for me to be placed in the 'Poets' category, please?
