Halloween is over and we're now ploughing firmly into whatever new season is approaching in your part of the world. We're making sure everyone is covered this week, with a poem to describe all four seasons, a short story that comes from a differently world entirely, and a piece of prosetry that discusses the act of writing itself.This week's features!
Poetic personification of the four seasons - there's something for everyone here.
' take on the interconnections between the four seasons and the sentiments within.
Xian watches over his domain, listening to the violent whispers of his trees, the murderous promises of his sword, and the hungry demands of his bestial sister. When an intruder arrives, Xian swiftly sets out to take him to task.
Here's something you really don't see every day: an original concept, fusing a broad range of influences and ideas, brought together in a very strongly written piece. But rather than just taking a good set of bulletpoints, ~2FacedPhantom
has created a piece of literature which is utterly devoted to the creation and introduction of a single character.
As we write, our stories die upon the page. Only through the writer's skill and the reader's willingness may the story be brought back to life.Staff Changes and Recruitment
takes us on a dizzying trip through the world-altering powers of the writer, summoning a myriad of people and locales that feel both crisp and familiar.
We're still on the lookout for a Literature Scout to join our team! Lit Scouts are the heroes who help build these Round-ups each each. If you want to get involved, please send ~monstroooo
It's with great sadness that we say good bye to two
of our hardest working admins. The wonderful *xlntwtch
has been with the group for a while now, helping to both moderate the galleries and compile these Round-ups. She gets through a lot of reading, and her years of editorial experience really helped make this feature stronger. Thank you, LJ!
And we've also had to say goodbye to =Inkfish7
. Mike is one of the literature community's finest writers. He's not been here long, but has thrown himself into the community and been an instant hit. From writing excellent guides, fascinating and heartfelt stories, and leaving considered feedback, he's quickly become a pillar of the community. He's been publishing some of the Round-ups for a few months now (as well as producing some excellent
blurbs), and will be sorely missed.
If you like what this group does, please send a little love towards these members and help us wish them well in the future.
Thanks for your time, guys! Community News!
