:bulletpurple: Suture Sledge! Slogan and Stamp competition! 05/16/10

:bulletpurple: Literature Forums! 02/06/10
To the new deviant, and even to deviants who have been here a while, this website can be an intimidating maze of resources, features, and tools that are difficult to navigate. Because of the nature of the beast, we here at suture would like to direct members of the literature community to the little-known world of the dA lit forums.

:bulletpurple: Essential Graphic Novels, Part 1 09/11/05
...a sampler of graphic fiction and non-fiction that amply demonstrates the power of sequential art.



:new: We're starting to see some submissions coming in! I am saving them all in a collection so do check them out! There are still plenty of spaces, so if you're curiously interested, then do sign up! :D Don't forget to spread the word too!

Previous: Wow 41 participants so far! There's lots of space, so it you want a story, come ask for a story! Also a few people have asked if they can submit a poem, I have no issue with this, so please if you want to poem instead you can!


It's been a long time since The Ancient Egyptian Deity challenge and the Poetic Spice-rack challenge and I thought it was time for another forum frolic because:

1. I enjoy them
2. It gets people writing. 

Did you know there are over 200 Grimm's Fairy tales? There's always lots of challenges that recreate fairy tales; modernise them, change endings and transform them into new and exciting versions. This is partly why they've stood the test of time. So lets keep this challenge simple and make our own exciting takes on them.

The basic rule for this challenge is to change the genders of all the characters in each of your story (can even be transgender, genderless etc if you want to). How you change or use the story is entirely up to you. You could retell the fairytale in your own way, or just take small elements from it to create your new tale.

How to join the challenge:

2. I will give you a Grimms' Fairy Tale from the list on Wikipedia.
3. You will then do a bit of research (at least read the tale, they're not that long and widely available to read online!) and write a story inspired by that tale as per above.
4. Post your results here!
5. I will collect them all, post a journal article and feature the results!
6. Spread the word! I'm posting this as a journal too to encourage lots of participation. Hopefully you'll look at other peoples pieces too to see how they took the challenge :)

Doing NaNoWriMo but want to play? These challenges usually last a few months before they dry up, so feel free to call "in" and save the writing till you've met your 50K

The full list Stories (and who has them):


We've managed to obtain some pretty awesome swag for this month! These prizes will be donated to the individual who is most actively involved in this months club. How do you win? Make awesome comments on these journals! Participate in the end of month chat and make meaningful contributions to the discussion! You can also write a critical review (uploaded as a lit deviation) or fanart, note CRLiterature about it, and get points for these as well.  The team is keeping track of who's doing what so even if you don't win in the month, you will still be considered for the grand booty at the end of the year!

The amazing prizes for this month are:

Bridget Jones Diary

Whilst November rears its busy NaNoWriMo head, along with preparations for Christmas, thanksgiving, bonfire night and all those end of year events, we need something that's a bit lighter on the mind, but still a good read! It's time to get a little bit romantic in a clumsy, unpredictable way!

BridgetJonesDiary by Beccalicious

Originally intended as a modern day Pride and Prejudice, we are entered into the diary and thoughts of hapless Bridget, a 30-something, chain smoking, alcohol enjoying single woman on her quest for love. This hilarious novel by Helen Fielding has produced 2 sequels and also successful film adaptations of those first two books.

Even if the idea of a modern women fiction makes your nose wrinkle, we want to encourage people to join in this months read and try something different!

How does the book club work?

  •  This journal going live means that Book Club for the month has officially started! So go ahead and begin reading!

  • The mid-month discussion will take place in the form of a journal with discussion in the comments section. This month's discussion will take place on November 16th. Be sure to +watch the CRLiterature account so that you don't miss any journals, polls, or other announcements!

  • The end-of-month discussion journal, will take place on November 30th. This will NOT be a spoiler-free event, so make sure you've finished the book before joining the discussion!

If you have questions, be sure to check out our FAQ, and if you want to keep an eye on future BookClub goings on, make sure to keep an eye on the schedule!

We can't wait to read with you!

Hey, what's this group about? I can't seem to find an FAQ. It looks cool, though.

It used to be a kind of all-things-lit, with a focus on tutorials and helping people to improve their craft. Got resurrected a while ago, but the resurrection didn't last very long. Been dead for a while now, unfortunately. :'(

I see. That's too bad.

Aye, everyone clamoured to commit themselves to the idea of it, but when it came to producing words: nadda.
