D.L.S. is a literary non-profit organisation which in 2009 started promoting works by writer members in English and Greek languages using electronic media. Later in the same year works in Spanish were also included in its pages. Its aim is to offer a podium for writers and a source of comparative quality literature to the discerning visitor.
For a writer to become a member they need to read our D.L.S. Charter and if they agree with conditions as they’re set-out, to sign the agreement for membership. In order to be accepted as a member one has to abide by basic pre-determined Charter regulations. These are outlined in the organisation’s D.L.S. Charter page which is a document that explains obligations as well as rights for members.
Writers who are full members can submit works on their own to this web-site. Each work submitted concerns the individual and does not hold the organisation responsible in any way. Each writer can submit an article, a poem, an essay or any other literary article to the web-site using their own login and article submission page. All articles submitted belong to the writer and D.L.S. has no right in using any article / text without prior writer knowledge.
There’s intention that at regular intervals a number of articles submitted to Diasporic Literature Spot are selected to create a D.L.S. journal in the languages it operates, in digital format which is then promoted and forwarded to interested parties, organisations, universities. D.L.S. journals are also be stored on this web-site for future reference and use, in Adobe pdf format. It is up to the administrator(s) at the time to select works and then inform writers by email that their work has been selected to be included. Writers agree their work will be included in the D.L.S. journal which is being made public.
Literary articles can include photographs, video, music etc, as long as no size limits are breached as per D.L.S. Charter.
There may be minimal cost associated with membership in future, however at this stage membership is free of charge. Whatever happens we’re striving to keep this a free service to the community of writers and we promise it will remain so for the immediate future.
The initial signing up of a member involves an agreement which will be accepted by the writer including a short biographical essay, a photograph if possible and a list of works published thus far.
