About TFP

The Favorites Project is dedicated to featuring a quality of literature to which other writers can aspire. TFP features worthy literature by way of a special panel of judges called Appraisers, who read and vote on all the suggestions sent in by members of the deviantART community. Our system is as democratic as possible for fairness sake: the Appraisers are instructed not to vote "yes" for a suggestion if they're not completely sure that it is a worthwhile piece of literature, and only a suggestion with at least five votes can be featured.

Quality Literature

In terms of what we consider "quality literature," we've outlined some points below with brief descriptions of what we mean, a list which is by no means inclusive. Each Appraiser uses their own discretion, but here are some of the qualities they are looking for:

1) Technique: Use of elements such as imagery, rhyme, and meter in poetry or dialogue and characterization in prose, for example, should represent the skill level at or above that of the writer. Proper use of spelling, grammar, and punctuation is expected.
2) Relevance: The message of the piece should not be obscure or overly personal; it must be able to appeal to a wider audience. In other words, a page out of last night's journal will be too narrow in focus and perspective.
3) Innovation: Literature should be clear of cliches and over-exposed opinions. The writer should always choose a fresh perspective and not be afraid to make the reader think or challenge conventions.
4) Organization: The content should be organized in a way that is deliberate to the purpose and scope of the piece. There should be no wasted space that adds only length and no significance.
5) Clarity: A writer should express themselves in a way that does not confuse the reader. For example, using large words may make a person sound intelligent, but it may also lose the audience.
6) Creativity: Literature is nothing if not creative. Wow us!


Anyone can suggest a piece of literature at any time. We are always open to suggestions!

If you have a piece of literature sitting in your favorites that you'd like to see featured, go to our Gallery of Favorites and click "Suggest a Fave. From there you can select one or more faves from your own collection to suggest. We feature literature of any genre, style, or subject, so suggest anything you think is worthy and we'll take it from there. All we ask is that you don't suggest a piece that has already received a Daily Deviation or a Daily Lit Deviation (occasionally, we will favorite something shortly before it is featured).
