I know this already. I was only confused about the splitting of Lit section into subsections.

We are not splitting anything. Some members are selected to sift out various genres of the works, help the writers to polish them up so that they could be front page worthy. It is wrong to push poorly-works to the front page; doing that would not give the Section a good image.

It was suggested you work with Royver but you turned down the suggestion.

The rate at which people plagiarise other people's works in quite disheartening.
Some writers here on Nairaland are bringing in published books for us to read, some are copying stories from other websites and they are bringing it to Nairaland.
I think we need to do something about it. We shouldn't just endorse stories for the frontpage, but know if the story once existed on was written by someone else.
You know what I mean, don't you?
I have decided to leave the literature section for good as soon as I am through with my stories. I think most old writers who left, left because of the new writers that we have who wanted to write but are too lazy to write, so they steal other people's works.
If anything needs to be done, lets do it. Literature section belongs to us, we should handle it well.

Do you have any of your works here?

We need to see what your about first.
Re: What Should This Be Called? by veave(f): 8:29pm On Jan 23, 2015
Even the little traffic you had has been chased away by inconsistent updates and some authors who respond to advice with insults. What is worth doing is worth doing well...

Ok we are here again, thanks to everyone who nominated, confirmed and to those who never strolled down here, its okay.

We now have a panel of the people who are very passionate about literature and seeing it not being represented well on this forum made things a bit difficult for them. Myself inclusive.


Poetry
(a)Texanomaly
(b)Timpaker
(c)Laykorn
(d)OMA4U

They will be responsible for collections of poems to grace front page on daily basis, there should be space for atleast two literature works on fp per day. They will work as coordinators, and we trust the four of them to bring the 'poems for review' subsection back to life.



Fiction
(a)D9ty7
(b)Larry Sun
(c)TemitopeDaniel
(d)Divepen
(e)Vantee
(f)Chistar01




Drama:
HumbledbyGrace




Short Stories
Royver



Non-fiction
(a)LarrySun
(b)TemitopeDaniel
(c)HumbledbyGrace

I'll email each of them to know their schedules and take it from there.

*N.B These people will be more like the Publishing Services offered; agents in the sense that they will be scouting for your work in this wild, wild west called the literature section, editors, they will help polish your work, critiques, they will give it a well deserved criticism if any or applaud it if they have to and finally get it to the right people to put it on frontpage.

Remember that they will be volunteering, honor them their respect, they have earned it.

isn't tryna get to FP kinda begging it?, what with plagiarists on rampage here..MHO

Well, what more can i say? Literature section used to be a lot more fun than it is these days.
I was a guest for years, literature section practically made me register. these days i don't even come here at all. My initial post is as clear as it is, don't know what else you want me to explain. Thanks

Just exactly what I want to hear. Literature section not being a plce of fun anymore is down to the participants(mostly the readers. We both know that 98% of topics on this section are stories and readers neglect their duties by not dropping their comments on stories that they enjoy reading, thereby, leaving the author/poster discouraged.
Another issue is the issue of plagiarism. Most nairaland writers took a break of the screen cos the rate at which stories are been stolen, even the devil is crying.
And the last thing is poor representation. Stories no longer make frontpage, writers are not being heard anymore.
Its 2015, there will be massive improvement before February and this section will get back its lost glory.

. Erm, ma'am. My own stories are nolonger here, just one left and even before I stopped updating I quoted Seun where he said this,

“Disclaimer: Every Nairaland member is solely responsible for anything that he/she posts or uploads on Nairaland.”

I explained that I couldn't continue because I had no legal protection on my work and still have plans for it so to avoid headache, I had to stop writing.

That doesn't mean I have given up on this section, I am here and will make things work out for good for us all.
