Hi, everyone. This probably won't come as a shock to many given the group's largely inactive recent history, but the time has at long last come for me to say goodbye.
When I founded DeviantLITERATURE
it was with the hope of creating a home on dA for writers to commune and share their work, as well as to expose themselves to the work of others. I felt that DeviantART lacked a respect for the work of writers, and wanted to try and change things. However, life got in the way of my admittedly grandiose plans, and I was forced to take a 10 month Hiatus from November of last year. This summer I had intended to get back into things and revamp the group which had fallen slightly to the wayside of my envisaged ideals, but as you will know, this was not fulfilled.
For these reasons, I am stepping down as Founder of the group. It has been an absolutely incredible 4 years, and I have met some astonishing people, and it is in the hands of one of these people that I leave you: Lissomer
. Sophia, your support (along with that of akrasiel
, :lorraineslh:, kbuckm
) has been astounding, and I know that I am leaving dL in very safe hands. I wish you all the best, and I cannot wait to see the group's development under your watchful eye!
It's been great, guys. Thank you for your writing, your reading and your enthusiasm.
