    Dorinda Palmisano: What a handsome trophy. What a wonderful token of accomplishment.
    April 11 at 1:08AM
    Henry King: It's not about the trophy. I'm not concerned about that. I'm concerned about the swift decline in position. I attempted to buy and use a chest, because my current one was going to expire in less than ten minutes. I was at the 9th position. I was only allowed to pump it. When I returned to promote it, not more than 10 minute later, it was at the 169 th position. Why/how/what?

FanStory: We've updated our club page! Now all clubs are shown ordered by the most recent events. The date the club event was added is also shown. Now it is easy to see which clubs have new events that you may want to enter. More active clubs are naturally listed first. View the club page. Also, check out the new Grammar Club!

Club owners if your club stops having events your club will automatically be removed from the club listing (roughly 90 days or more with no events).

FanStory: We had many requests for a 5-7-5 Poetry Contest for Valentines Day. So we made one available. You can view it here.
January 28 at 1:54PM

FanStory: What was the most popular poem to write in 2017? It was the 5-7-5. It's a three line poem with a set syllable count. It's fun to write and challenging. To celebrate the new year and the new 2018 rankings we've announced new 5-7-5 poetry contests. We have a 5-7-5 poetry contest in January (deadline is next week) and one in February, March, April and one in May! We promised more contests and we have already delivered! All have cash prizes. And look for new 5-7-5's in our daily writing prompts. Good luck!

    Brigitte Elko: I believe strongly that writers and potentially great writers become discouraged frequently. A club that promotes only positive comments and suggestions of encouragement for the craft would be a welcome addition. Would love to host...
    Respectfully submitted,
    Brgitte Elko

    pbomar1115: Brigitte Elko, I'm with you on the positive comments and all; however, occasionally, I might receive a suggestion that does not sit comfortably with me but I've learned to shake it off, realizing that members are well-meaning.

    Lisa Rachel Tremback: I am refusing any more reviews. Had one guy who went into my poetry to find a bad one to thwart,because I didn't write a good review on him. I am not into attacks in chat rooms, always have avoided them in the past and now is no different.
    October 28 at 2:07PM
    Lisa Rachel Tremback: You can look at my replies. He just had to get back at me for my review. He claims he didn't, but my psychologist husband believes it was an underhanded attack. I am a ptsd victim and don't want to be involved in reviewing anymore if that is what hapoeens.

    Lisa Rachel Tremback: Not bad Lisa but you seem to be all over the place with your rhyme scheme. For a person who is quite partial to rhythm thought the set out of this poem could have been better and it was hard to get into any sort of flow with the words.
    Some of the rhyming and near rhyming words seemed forced but overall worth revisiting. I think with a bit of restructuring of the verse it could be better than a good poem

    dip

    This happened after I gave the guy this review...

    With respect Lisa it was prose not rhyming verse. Prose doesn't normally have a rhythm to it as there is no rhyme scheme in prose to create a rhythm or beat. If you are at all interested, please visit my other 3000 posting all done in rhyming verse.
    I hardly ever write prose as a matter of fact it's probably one of about 5 if lucky written in free verse.
    Please show me an example of a poem in free verse or prose that has a created rhythm.
    Thanks for the average review much appreciated. I don't think I've ever been given a three so there's always a first for everything and you are the lucky reviewer to do it.

    dip

    very underhanded, but still it was done.
    October 29 at 12:59PM

FanStory: If you haven't already, check our our new writing clubs. Want to host your own club? Contact us with your club idea.

    Ellen Evans: I am very frustrated. I spent $100.00 to post this entry for comment. How could this be expired. Please help me with this. Feedback is critical for my writing. What do I need to do to get this read?
    July 22 at 5:52PM
    pome lover: will see if I can come with one. first effort.
    July 26 at 9:29AM
    Possummagic: Do I understand correctly that you can't vote for yourself? ( I didn't by the way)
    August 2 at 5:29AM
    Possummagic: This may be a silly question but I can't find the answer on line. Can a person vote for themselves in the booth. I have not done so before but just wondered what the rules are. Thanks - Marie
    August 14 at 2:26AM
    Auto-Manic: Hi all. Never wrote a screenplay, looked up the format, WOW...that takes talent. Is there a specific format that needs to be used? If so, please advise and maybe I'll give this a shot.
    Thanks all

    zekeziemann: I tried to enter the War contest and at the end discovered that my story had been posted previously and, I guess, is not eligible. But the entry cost me over 10 member dollars. How can he member dollars be deducted when the story is not available for readers??
    December 15 at 3:21PM

FanStory: The contest page has been updated. Now it should be easier to see the contests that have deadlines rapidly approaching. View the listing.

    March 20 at 10:53AM

FanStory: You asked for more writing contests. We've added more! Three new writing contests with cash prizes have been added to the contest listing. Two of them with deadlines just a few weeks away!

To decide what contests to add we looked at our 17 year history of hosting writing contests to find the ones created by site members that were the most popular. What were they?

The most popular were flash fiction contests. We recently added three flash fiction contests so we did not add more.

Next was a dialogue only prompt. So we are happy to announce the Dialogue Only Writing Contest.

Followed by that was romance. We have announced the Unexpected Romance Writing Contest.

Next was non-fiction. We have introduced the I Remember writing contest.

All have cash prizes. Good luck!
