Tatarka2: I have a poem that I've written in a specific shape. It doesn't work unless it's printed in exactly that shape. I've tried & tried to post it that way, gotten advice from Tom, and even had a computer expert come over yesterday to help me out. It still doesn't post in that shape, so I've deleted it. Does anybody have any ideas that could help me? I know some of you have posted poems in alternative shapes. How did you do it?

Tatarka2: I am thrilled to announce that a flash fiction piece I wrote, "A Late Appointment," has been chosen as a finalist in Fiction Southeast's 2015 fiction competition. This is the first piece I ever submitted to FanStory. It's a true story that I've always believed in, and I've been shopping it around for the last couple of years, hoping it would find a home. It will be published in an upcoming issue of this journal. I'm really excited. Thanks you to all of you FanStory supporters and friends, who have offered so much encouragement and good advice. I appreciate all of you.

Michaelk: That's fantastic! Congratulations!
When I get a minute I'm going to go back and read it.
It's always great to hear Fanstorians' success stories. :)
Introducing Life Through Poetry and Art. Enjoy poetry reflecting the highs and lows of life, but ultimately seeing the light in every situation.
Having experienced tough challenges and learning to bounce back from life’s inevitable setbacks, she desires to share hopefulness, even when it seems that all is lost.
These poems are about a life’s journey through self-evaluation, seeing oneself in a positive space while asserting self-empowerment, growth and acceptance of the “new you”. The author also points out that it is important to identify negative energy, deflect them in their path, and forge ahead to the best part of oneself while embracing the beauty of art and poetry.
