This Week's Group Spotlight



:spotlight-left: :iconheart-of-poetry: :spotlight-right:



Heart-of-Poetry's main focus is poetry, however, "this group is dedicated to all literature -- poetry, prose, novels, etc. Our main purpose is to support, inspire, and encourage aspiring poets and authors." They hold a weekly prompt and are just a very warm and supportive group. Click here to learn a little more about this group's admins.

Oilux, the co-founder of Heart-of-Poetry, was kind enough to let me ask her a few questions regarding the group.


:star:Can you explain a bit about your group, Heart-of-Poetry, and what makes it different from other literature groups on dA?
Heart-of-Poetry is an amazing literature group where we accept any kinds of writing, no matter what subject it's on. I like to think that what makes us different from other literature groups is our activity, weekly prompts, and interactive members. It's an amazing group where we try to make everyone feel great about who they are, improve their skills, and even talk to them on a constant basis.


:star:"Support, inspire, encourage." is the group's tagline,  what are some of the things you do for your members to support this?
     Support: for every deviation that is accepted, it is read by myself before it is included. Now one comment left here on our group has gotten ignored, and we try to cater to every single person to make sure that they feel supported.
      Inspire: our weekly prompts are meant to inspire as well as the contests that we have. We here are meant to inspire and encourage people to do their best so that they can always be proud of whatever they accomplish.
       Encourage: we never deny a deviation into our group unless they are submitted to the wrong folder, and even then we let them know that they have completed a masterpiece and that it should be shared. There is no such thing as bad poetry, there is simply different idea's about what poetry is.


:star:Will there be any future projects and events can we expect from Heart-of-Poetry?
Hopefully soon, we will have another contest. We have yet to decide on the theme, but there most certainly will be another contest soon. Until then though, we have our weekly prompts that entertain everyone.


:star:In your opinion, what has been the most challenging aspect of running the group? Rewarding?
The most challenging aspect is remembering that every week there should be a new prompt. It's well worth it though when I look at the pieces that people have written for the prompt and seeing how amazing they are indeed. Truly all the work that goes into this group is so amazing because we get to see so many others improve and age as writers.


:star:Anything else of note that you would like to share?
No, but thank you for giving me the chance to answer these questions.
