We're Focusing on Nonfiction!
It's probably poor form to repeat something I've said before, but recent studies show that reading a passage more than once is one of the best ways to improve comprehension.  With that in mind, and catering to those of you who may have missed the Project: Educate article, please allow me this small discretion:
What is Nonfiction?
Nonfiction deals with real people and real events in the real world. There are many different types and approaches to Nonfiction, from the very academic and formal to the very creative and experimental, but all of these methods are held together by a common thread: they are based on and built around accuracy and facts.
Now, facts are a tricky subject. As  EveningDownpour  mentioned in her Nonfiction Poetry Writers-Workshop:
Ten people can watch the same fight, but each person will have their own unique interpretation of the event. Were you to ask what

CEA Update : Defining pornography in Literature
It has been long assumed that the literature guidelines could be inferred from the guidelines governing image submissions, however actual feedback from the gallery Directors who interact with the literature community has indicated that this assumption is incorrect and that many members willfully feign confusion over the rules in order to submit clearly pornographic content.
To this end we will attempt to first clarify the perceived differences between allowed erotic literature and the type of literature which should be deemed pornographic and therefore prohibited. I would like to specifically point out that the explanations and guidelines that follow are not new and in fact simply detail the way deviantART policy has been applied to literature for several years.
The difference between erotica and pornography as defined by dictionary definitions is fairly non-existent, as much of what is considered erotic encompasses explicit sexual themes. Therefore we should clarify that

Hobbling on Hope
You may call me Bill or Pip. I'm a twenty-something editor, a self-professed punctuation junkie with a penchant for words, and a Catholic. I am also a very private, shy homosexual living my day-to-day between New York City and Oxford.

I like talking about sex, politics, books, relationships, religion, grammar, philosophy, literature, music, baseball and football. I have an old obsession with black and white movies and anything noir, and a true appreciation for Jimmy Stewart, Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire, and Cary Grant.

We'll probably get on well if you know who Robbe-Grillet is, enjoy Borges or Nabokov, can admit to liking Oscar Wilde, hate James Joyce and John Steinbeck, like Keats, appreciate Donne, and believe that Baldwin and Capote are among the greatest American writers in literary history.

Or, if reading isn't your thing, hit me up with a "Hello!" I welcome random IMs and notes.
