I wrote a poem for my Micro-250 story. I have lines like this:

Lorem ipsum dolor
  sit amet, consectetur
    adipiscing elit.

Not the real words, obviously.

Submittable removes the spaces at the beginning of lines. So I replaced the spaces at the start of offset lines with this blankspace character:

Is this fine or against the rules? Submittable accepted it and poem is now spaced how I originally intended.

If Submittable accepted your story, it should be fine. The submission form will not allow stories longer than 250 words to be uploaded. Please let us know if you have any other questions or need anything else. Good luck!
