Hello POMpoets — here’s how to fix the formatting issues on your poems!

Hi POMpoets!!

I’ve been super busy reviewing submissions, doing the POMpoet onboarding, and there are some really frequent mistakes that need addressing.

That pesky double spacing! Here’s how to fix that!

That subtitle needs to be in subtitle format! Here’s how to fix that!

Your image in the wrong place? Here’s how to fix that!

Note: Every single link above goes to the same article. But it can’t help if you don’t read it. The editorial notes seem like a little thing for the editors to do, but when over 80% of articles (sometimes nearly all of them) require these…


Here’s a nutshell recap of all that’s new — and some of it may surprise you!

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to be a full time writer, well, it’s a lot of work. I get up each morning and think several things in quick succession: I need to open the blinds so I can watch the birds on the feeder. I need to pee. I need to take the dog out. I should get up.

WEEK ONE


Welcome to Medium’s newest up-and-coming publication.

So, why on earth would I start a new publication? I mean, aren’t there like a billion of them already?

Take a look on Medium for the latest on beauty trends. News about the latest beauty tools or techniques. Cultural discussions on what beauty means, especially for women or non-cis genders. Stories by trans women on how they deal with self-care, while balancing society’s misconceptions on their shoulders.

Imagine tweezing your eyebrows for the first time as a young boy. Imagine defining your own beauty, even when it’s hard. Picture a field full of essential oil bottles and each has…


Dear Medium, Please bring back the Top Writer badges on our profiles. In one quick glance I knew: this is a writer I want to follow, this is a writer who is killing it on Medium, this is a writer who covers topics that interest me.

I liked those little tags at the top of my profile — showing the world what I have accomplished here on Medium. Ok, showing the few hundred…the ones that show up every day and support my work because they enjoy my words.

Those people are everything. But I really miss my Top Writer badges…
