Our vision here at written-from-within is to bring writers of all styles and genres together to not only share their works with deviantART and the world, but to also connect with those who have something to say. written-from-within is a place for members to support one another in their writing endeavours.

We want this to be a very active club, and when we get enough members then we can start having contest's and plenty of activities started.

There are many things available here, and we also feel this is a place where someone can ask questions/get advice from fellow members.

Hello members of Written-From-Within!

I would like to introduce you to our new Admins.


“I have been on DA for almost a year now. I noticed that a lot of the authors I like entered their work into this group, so I decided to check it out. That was 10 months ago and I am so glad I decided to join. Even though I don't post most of it I mostly write poetry but I am slowly writing a novel titled Humans' End. I also write fan fiction in the rest of my free time. My favorite author is Emily Dickinson because when I first read her poem, "Hope" I knew I would love all of her work. Now here I am, writing my own poetry and connecting her own life with mine, sometimes I like to think of her as a twin. (Or maybe I'm a reincarnation of her for the 21st century.)”


“I've been on dA for about 5 years. I had a previous account and decided to create a new account to start fresh, so this account is 2 years old, going on 3 this year. I was active as far as submitting work, but could never get my hands dirty with groups, so this is quite exciting! I was a part of the group on my old account until I moved. After lurking on other people's pages, which I'm not at all ashamed of doing, I found the familiar icon and had a feeling of nostalgia come over me! I decided to join again and try to get to know even more people in the Lit Community. Poetry is my refuge. I treat Prose as uncharted territory I'm itching to discover. As far as style goes, I’m still trying to figure that out myself. It's a journey, a long one at that, and every day is a challenge I'm excited to tackle. I have a lot of favorite writers on dA. I can't just name one! And it would be very unfair to name a few and exclude others who are equally worthy. Basically, everyone in my Friends list (and I know there's plenty others I've yet to meet, so those future Friends as well).”


“I've been sharing my work on dA for 2 months. I was definitely attracted by the name, Written-From-Within, as it struck a chord with me. I keep coming back because of the quality of work submitted to the group gallery. I like to dabble wherever my thoughts take me.  Lately it’s been mainly experiential poetry and short sci/fi - fantasy fiction. At the moment I would probably say my favorite writer is Robert Jordan (aka James Oliver Rigney Jr) because I'm 4 books deep into the Wheel of Time series.  He keeps me interested even though it just keeps going on and on and on. Great sensory feel to it and I like the perspective change between characters every other chapter or so.”


“I've been on DeviantART for about two, closing on three years, though I have been aware of it much before. I was looking for a group that might be able to get more notice to my work, though as I got in, I've realized it was the right choice, since the works that are being submitted there are truly amazing and I enjoy reading through them in my free time, giving feedback or just friendly comments. My writing style for each literary piece is different. For poetry, which is my main focus, it is traditional and fixed forms, and each poem has a story behind it, not a fictional one, but my or one of my friends' experiences. As for short stories and such, I prefer the fictional genre, since my creativity can bloom freely with no restrictions of reality. My favorite writer of all time is Anthony Burgess, because of his book, my favorite book A Clockwork Orange. I choose my readings carefully and I only enjoy a piece if it makes me feel. This book made me fall bad, cry, it questioned my morality and has given me a slight loss of hope, and made me think for days and hours on end.”


“I have been on dA for almost 3 years. First, as a silent watcher/admirer and now, with a new and active account which is 9 months old. I've been looking for groups to share my poems with and saw this group on other deviants poems. I like groups that have a good number of watchers/members, but not so many that you feel like no one actually reads your art. Besides I liked the name. My writing style is 80% Traditional fixed form and 20% free verse/spoken word. Mostly in the emotional/narrative/mourning department I think. My favorite writer is Sarah Kay. She is an amazing writer and spoken word artist. I relate to her works a lot and you can feel that she speaks truly from her heart. Listening to her makes me smile every time.”
