Guild Guide

Hello and welcome to the Guild! Here writers and critiques like you gather to trade ideas, tips, and talk about the hottest books. There are a few rules I'd like you to observe though:

#1 The most important rule of the Guild: Do not flame others on their work. If you don't like it don't comment it's as simple as that. Be aware that you only get one warning. After the second offense you will be removed or blocked from this group.

#2 Please refrain from submitting anything too graphic without some sort of warning. Respect the fact that not everyone approves of the same views as you do.

#3 Do not ask to become an admin. You'll be invited upon another admin's suggestion or if you show interest in a position.

#4 If you wish to advertise a group don't hound members to join your group. Simply ask an admin if you can leave an ad. Please do not spam the homepage.

#5 If you have a conflict with another member be mature about it and resolve it peacefully. If you believe it will get out of hand ask one of the admins for help.

#6 In any work if you use anything that isn't yours give credit. Theft of any kind is not allowed nor will it be tolerated

#7 Please make formal critiques. That means no abbreviations and preferably good grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation.

#8 Be insightful when writing a critique. Do not write simple one sentenced comments such as "Good job!" or "Well done!". A critique is designed to help a writer. Praise is good, but if you have suggestions throw them into the reply.

#9 Please do not submit anything to the featured folder. An admin will decide on what goes into the featured folder. If you think there is a piece of literature should be in this folder tell an admin. You only get five suggestions a month to this folder.

Hey members! Sorry for the inactivity here on the guild, but I'm back and I've got a couple of new features I'd like to share with you all.

First off, I'm sure you've all seen that lonely little folder labeled Book chats right? Honestly I don't even know what it's doing there so I've come up with a solution. The point of the Book Chat folder was to provide a place for people to chat about new books, upcoming book, and so on. So to solve that empty folder problem I'd like to propose to you all the idea of a Book Chat forum. That opens up an admin position for those of you who'd like to become an admin.

Secondly, I'd like the Guild to start a Beta program. For those of you that don't know, a beta is just another name for an editor. Really there's not a huge difference between a Beta's job and an editor's job. This system would work much like Peer editing between the writer and the beta. Now you don't have to advertise all your information here on the Guild, you could ask another member by note. And again this also opens up an admin position to handle the Beat system.

Lastly and most importantly, Monthly Features. I'm sure this would benefit not only the Guild, by advertising a variety of literature, but also the members seeing as this is your work being featured. Every month admins would get together and decide the three pieces of literature to showcase as the Monthly Features. Of course you can opt out of this if you truly wanted to, but everyone is going to be involved in the Monthly Feature so your work might just show up on a month.

Well that's about all the new features I can come up with now. I'd love to hear from you guys, what you thought of the ideas. None of these can happen if there's no feedback because these really are for all you members.

I'm never certain how to tell, so I hope you don't mind me just flat out asking; how active would you say this group is currently?

To be honest, not very. One of our staff is in college and I don't know about our contributor. I kind of gave up looking for admins since the last post I made got no response for the job of admin

A Have a question for the group. When do you know you are a writer ???

Hmm, that's an excellent question. I think a writer is someone who writes down their own ideas for a specific purpose. Whether that be for discussion or entertainment, that depends on the person. Hope that answers your question

Hey, I'm new to DeviantArt, and kind of new to writing. I used to always write for fun but only just recently started getting serious about it. I don't really have any finished works yet :/ and am mostly looking for a place to get advice and critiques and what not as I start writing more things.

We'd love to have you as part of the guild, that is if you'd like to join. Don't be shy, go ahead and post some of your work in our folders to help get yourself known. I'm sure some of our members would love to help you out and give feedback :aww:
