LITERATURE admissions
Welcome to the admissions community for lit_library! You must apply for admissions here before you can join lit_library or any of the teams. Once admitted, you can join your team for challenges issued in The Book Shelf.

Rules For Admittance:
- Must be at least 14-years-old
- Journal must be at least 1 month old
- Must participate in at least two activities a month
- Must be respectful of other members' opinions

Rules for when you are being sorted:
- Fill out the form given in a new post.
- Applicants will only be sorted on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
- Please do not apply unless you have time to participate in the community. The community is only as fun as the members make it out to be.
- The four possible teams are as follows: The Contemporaries, The Moderns, The Romantics, and The Victorians. Please note that you may not be assigned to your preferred teams as we are trying to keep the number of team members equal.
- Do not delete your application. If there is a problem with the application, please let a mod know.
- If you need to edit your application, please let a mod know before doing so and specify what you are changing.
- Once you have been sorted your application will be opened for questions from members so they can get to know you. Your answers to these questions will make no difference to how you have been sorted or your membership in the community.
- Please put "Shakespeare" in the subject line of your application so we will know that you read the rules. If you fail to do so your application will be rejected.

The application can be found in the text box below. Please do not use Rich Text as it destroys the HTML provided. Also, begin answering any questions AFTER all HTML to avoid making the entire application bold.


lit_victorians: Victorian work tends to be idealized portraits of difficult lives in which hard work, perseverance, love and luck win out in the end; virtue would be rewarded and wrongdoers are suitably punished. They tended to be of an improving nature with a central moral lesson at heart.

lit_romantics: The Romantics valued individualism, reverence for the natural world, idealism, physical and emotional passion, and an interest in the mystic and supernatural.

lit_moderns: The Modernists desired to break with the past, rejecting literary traditions that were outmoded, and diction that seemed too out of place with this era of technology and global violence.

lit_contemps: The Contemporaries uses the concept of 'showing' and 'telling', or what is now essentially known as 'show don't tell', is at the heart of contemporary writing
