INFORMATION
After a brief hiatus, Gypsy returned to take her place as a valued member of Fanstory. She has taught classes, won and placed in both site and member contests, and continues to flex her community spirit by sponsoring contests, and organizing a Japanese linked poetry, multi-author Renga book. While she has written prose, Gypsy's penchant is for contemporary and traditional haiku, senryu, shadorma, sijo, and sedoka poetry among others. She is also a top-tier reviewer and has earned her place in the ranks.

Published two haiku books for sale in Amazon

    Pangalactic: Hi Gypsy,
    I'm new to the club, just had our third child and haven't had time to submit any work yet but am excited to do so.
    My question is about capitalization - it's the choka style alike to haiku where no capitalization takes place. And maybe a word on punctuation as well - many thanks
