To site suggesters: Only sites that are of interest to people looking for information about specific authors will be accepted for inclusion into this category. However, if you would like to submit a site about a particular author for whom a subcategory has not yet been created, this is the best place to do it. Also be aware that we do not accept sites whose primary focus is to sell books by any specific author. Such sites should be submitted appropriately to Shopping/Publications/Books and its sub-categories.
This category primarily serves as a placeholder for the subcategories that are dedicated to individual, recognized authors.
Sites concerning individual authors should not be submitted to this category. For example, a site on Stephen King should be submitted here: Arts: Literature: Authors: Horror: K: King, Stephen.

Commercial sites should be submitted to the appropriate "shopping" category. For example a site selling books by Stephen King should be submitted here: Shopping: Publications: Books: Fiction: Sci-Fi Fantasy and Horror: King, Stephen.

This category is concerned primarily with sites presenting information about literary awards, usually for published works, or best seller lists. Alternatively, sites relating information on prizes and awards in support, recognition, or promotion of the field of literature.
This category is for online information about biographies, including online texts. Sites that are selling books or information must be submitted to a subcategory of Shopping/Publications/Books; they will not be reviewed here.
There is currently no description created for this category.
Arts/Literature/Chats & Forums is for online literary communities whose main feature is an interactive community discussing published literature and authors.

Chats or forums whose main focus is submitting of original writing for online viewing and discussion belong in the Online_Writing category.

To maximize visibility, first look for the most specific category for the community. For example, if the main focus of your community forums is Science Fiction, your best bet would be to submit to Science Fiction and Fantasy/Message Boards and Communities/. Likewise if your main focus is discussion of a specific author or book - like ''Stephen King'' or ''Harry Potter'' - check to see if these categories have an area for forum communities.

Chats and Forums are an interactive element on many websites. The presentation and delivery formats may vary slightly, from threaded discussion boards, to online mailing lists and live chat, but all facilitate the exchange of ideas and information in an online community setting.
This category is for sites that offer information about literature for children. Sites which sell literature for children do not belong in this category. They should be sent to Shopping/Books/Sellers/Children. Do not add duplicate URL's.
Please submit sites relating to specific dramatists
Drama here refers to a play, or a literary composition intended to portray life or character or to tell a story usually involving conflicts and emotions exhibited through action and dialogue, designed for theatrical performance. The resulting literary traditions reflect the full spectrum of thought as history allows us to know it. A dramatist, or playwright, is one who writes plays. Dramatist can also refer to a person involved in the art of composing, writing, acting, or producing plays. In this category are found sites and categories relating to playwrights, their literary works, and the artistic environments and traditions in which they worked.
This Open Directory Project category is for printed literary texts available on the Internet--links to Internet literature archive projects such as Project Gutenberg, for example, can be found here. If you are looking for--or wish to submit a site with or related to--literature originally published to the Internet, you may wish to browse the Arts: Online Writing category.

Literature festivals vary tremendously in their formats, but all have in common a wish to celebrate literature and literacy. Typically, a festival will be spread over more than one day and will include readings from authors, book sales, workshops and signings. Some festivals concentrate on "great" literature, others focus on the literature of a particular part of the world, others again may focus on children's literature or more accessible, everyday books.
