MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION:

  • double-spaced 
  • one-inch margins
  • Word or pdf with your last name in the filename
  • 12 point font
  • Times-Roman (or other serif font). Do NOT use sans-serif font like Helvetica -- be careful since the default font for Apple is a sans-serif. We are fussy about this because sans-serif is very hard on the eyes and is not meant for long work.
  • page number on every page (amazing how many people don't do this)
  • name on every page (also amazing)
  • cover page with name and contact information
  • a 300 word synopsis.  It needs to be 300 words within 25 words, not more, not less.  We have found that this really helps the writer focus and think about their work.
  • resume -- doesn't have to be elaborate
