The WikiLiterature project is a project where we have a wide-range of community-driven, free-use literary works. Unlike Wikisource, third-party works are not allowed, even if they are in the public domain or are freely licensed. Editing of a literary work, named "Featured works" can be permanently restricted to administrators after these criteria are met:

  1. There aren't any grammatical deficiencies
  2. There are no major alterations within a 3-month period
  3. (For novels) The novel has a clear categorization of text
  4. (For worldbuilding-driven works) The worldbuilding is consistent, and there are no inconsistencies
  5. The plot is original and novel.
  6. Vandalism is not frequent, and is quickly reverted.

Literary works can also include worldbuilding; if the creator chooses so, it must be classified upon creating it. Individuals can also upload files that can illustrate the literary works; videos are not allowed. Similar to Wikipedia, all content is available under a Creative Commons license, but a CC-BY 4.0 license (basically, third-parties are free to do what they want with such works, as long as they give credit to those behind the writings).
