We are the Lit-Visual Alliance! Here to promote networking and friendship between literary and visual artists. Interested? Read on:

Please check out our Submission Guidelines & Frequently Asked Questions.

This group is a direct result of thornsComplaint ChallengeI've had the idea for some time, but if it wasn't for her it would still be nothing more than an idea.

Writers, ever feel like literature just doesn't get the attention it should here, with so many more visual artists and appreciators? Ever feel tempted to be bitter toward those much more recognized visual artists? Don't hate them, work with them! Visual artists love it when people write poems or stories based on their artwork. Sometimes they love it so much they tell everyone! Voila - exposure. 

Visual artists! Ever feel like you just don't have any inspiration or ideas? Well guess what? There is an absolutely enormous wealth of inspiration here on dA and it is called the Literature Community. Detailed, lovely imagery just waiting for you to paint, draw or craft it into existence! Not sure exactly how to find this inspiration? Join up, and we will show you! :D

This group will inspire visual artists to create artwork based on literature pieces, and inspire literary artists to write literature about visual art pieces. If you would like someone to draw/write about your piece, submit it here! Would you like to draw/write about a piece by someone else? Browse our gallery! 

I created this group because I feel the lit community is rather a bit too insular and needs to branch out and engage the visual arts community, instead of just envying their exposure. And I think visual artists need to give dA literature a chance to be a source of inspiration. It's all about artists working with one another.  

I've noticed that quite a few people who don't read literature on dA refrain because they have trouble finding quality literature. The Lit-Visual Alliance is here to help! Anyone who wants to submit a deviation to our group is welcome, but we will have a special folder for truly exceptional literature pieces, practically guaranteed to inspire visual artists. We will also have a special folder for truly exceptional visual artwork just waiting to inspire literary work.

Like what you've read so far? Want to be involved? Not quite sure just what's going on here? Join up, spread the word, ask questions! We'd absolutely love to have you! :eager:

"I want a spring contest!" said the 3 year old version of myself, stomping her feet as her bottom lip thickened.

The 3 year old version of myself ran in circles, screaming with delight and anticipation.
