jeslaf: Over a decade ago, on a harrowing cross country flight, I scribbled a bucket list in the back of a pocket Bible. I vowed that if I didn't die on that plane, that I would see every item through to the finish. Fifteen years later, all goals are checked but one: print publication. After a slew of rejection and a few online nibbles, I have finally gotten my first print acceptance--one poem--and I sincerely hope I don't drop dead, because I'm just getting started. Thanks to all of you who have encouraged me, lovingly told me what worked and what didn't, and hung in past the mood swings. I am grateful for your friendship. :)

    Janelle: Well strike me dead and colour me purple! At last there has been some sense shown in the publishing world! Congratulations on this totally overdue recognition of what we at Fanstoryland knew all along; that your work should be made available to the masses, in particular those of the masses that appreciate excellent and unique poetry. Woohoo to you Jess my friend, I am so happy for you. xxoo
