Welcome!

Welcome to Teenage Writers!

This is a place where young writers (aged 13-19) can get get feedback on their work, participate in contests and other activities, and improve their writing. Here, we don't believe in 'talent' or 'have-it-or-not ability.' Our goal is to provide support, exposure, and advice to all aspiring writers. Even the writers start somewhere, no matter if you're not so great now because keep at it and one day you will be!




What's Going On:


:bulletred: Our Twisted Valentines Contest is over! Round of applause for the winners.

:bulletblue: A literature/art collaboration project is currently running with partner group The-Youngest-Artists! Assignments are finalised and everyone is currently working hard towards our November deadline.

Congratulations to dagoth-jeff, Jellyfish6, Tureis and dreamsarefairytales for winning our Twisted Valentines Contest with these amazing entries!

Joining and Submission Rules

We accept any authors who wish to join into our group and writing of all types into our gallery. However, there are certain rules that must be followed, as listed below.

We encourage active participation in this group, not just acting as another gallery to submit your deviations. Members are strongly encouraged to regularly take part in group activity. It's not a worry if you really have not the time, but nonetheless it is generally considered an important part of being a member.

If you reach your 20th birthday, you don't have to leave the group. You can still submit, too, but only if it is young-adult in genre and submitted into the young adult folder. Because, unfortunately, we all get older, but it doesn't mean we have to grow up!


*****


To Join--Must Read


Our join rules are spaced out through our submission rules, to make sure you've read them before joining. Any join requests that do not meet the rules will be declined.


*****


To Submit--Must Read


:bulletyellow: It must be literature, but preview images and visual literature are allowed. Submission limit is 3 deviations per day, except for the critiqueable folder (see below). When joining please tell us your age.

:bulletblack: Mature content is allowed but not 18+ as that is unreadable for the majority of our members (this also means that we do not accept erotica).

:bulletpink: All stand-alone writing must be submitted to appropriate genre folders such as Romance, General, etc. The Young Adult folder, while created mainly for members who have now out-grown their teenage years, accepts all writing of the young adult genre regardless of the age of the author. Submission into the featured folder is not allowed, that folder is reserved for contest winners and other special features. Give a short description of yourself.

:bulletpurple: All chapters of multichapter stories are to be submitted into the Novels folder unless it is fanfiction (then it goes in the Fanfiction folder), it is young adult (then it goes in the Young Adult folder), or you would like it critiqued (then it goes in the Critiqueable folder).

:bulletgreen: Only submit up to two chapters (or two chapters and a prologue, a prologue isn't counted as a chapter) of a novel then have a link to the rest. All additional chapters will be declined. Tell us why want to join.

:bulletblue: Submit into the correct folders, and do not submit the same deviation twice. Any deviations that are submitted a second time, are submitted into incorrect folders, or are third or more chapters will be declined.

One very important thing: when submitting a piece into the Critiqueable folder, you must first critique someone else's deviation in that folder. Click "Submit Art" and submit your piece, then go to your inbox and find that correspondence message. Click on "No Comments," then add a comment including the link to your critique. Submissions are unlimited as long as each one is partnered with your own critique. Any submissions without a prior critique will be declined (and a "critique" doesn't have to be an actual deviant feature critique, for those without premium membership a critique in the form of a thorough comment will be perfectly fine). And finally, put in your join request our special 'Prove I Made It To the End' word: "ECHIDNA" (don't know what that is? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echidna you've just learned a new word).

We'd love to have you!

Eep, looks like I was a bit hasty with my last announcement.

And I'd like to announce that we'll be having another round of Two Thousand Words! This time hosted over in it's own group, but since most of the writers came from this group last year I think I'll keep Teenage-Writers open for the duration of this project :-)

This round will be a reverse round, an artist challenge this time, with a lower word count for writers who will be writing pieces inspired by art! Find the information here: twothousandwords.deviantart.co…

I hope to see everyone there :-)
This is sort of sudden but...

I'm afraid I find myself leaving deviantART. Not deliberately, but I've stopped writing so much flash fiction nowadays and instead working on long term projects so I don't have much to post. There's also more and more things going on in my life, not bad things at all, but I just don't have as much motivation right now for internet websites such as this.

This group's activity has been dropping for a long time, which I haven't minded too much since I see that all groups go through a life cycle. However, I think it's better to delete it than to leave it sitting around inactive. I was originally planning to start a new group but unfortunately I'd still have the same problem. So I guess I'll leave that for now.

I'm keeping TwoThousandWords up, though I don't know what's happening to that yet. I'm still writing but dA isn't the best place for novel-length stories so I don't know if I'll return to post. Maybe I will come back to start that other group one day, but I'm not really sure right now.

Anyway, everyone, it's been an awesome 4 years :-) But unfortunately times change, so I guess it's time to say goodbye. This group will stay up for a few more days just so all the members can see the notice, then I'll be deleting it.

Farewell! And maybe I'll see you again in a new group of mine someday :-)

If you would like to submit this deviation, you're free to do so yourself :-)

Sorry for the stupid question but how do you submit writing to a group?

Most groups (like this one) only accept submissions from members. So on the front page of a group that you're a member of, you should see a blue banner that says "Welcome Home". To the right, on the banner, will be several buttons. One of them is an icon of a painting called "Submit Art" click it and select the deviations you want to submit :-)

Hope this helps.

Hi! I own a creative writing blog-writtenforreconciliation.blogs… and so would like to get a global eye view on conflict and conflict resolution. Hence I would like to use some little stories about said theme.

Thank you!
