Manuscript Guidelines

  • Manuscript must be double spaced.
  • All manuscripts must have indented paragraphs, using the indent function on your word program (usually under format, paragraph) and set the indentations of the first line of a paragraph to 1cm or 0.5 inches. Please do not indent by adding spaces, it just causes us more work.
  • Do not add headers or footers to your manuscript. We do not require your name on every page nor do we require page numbers. The more you add the more we have to remove and reformat. These are all things we would have to remove ourselves if we accept your manuscript.
  • Remove all graphics, watermarks, or background images. All graphics will be handled by our Graphics Department.  In the case of Graphic Novels or any other published materials (such as children’s books) that required outside illustration we will instruct you on how to proceed with your completed manuscript.
  • Page breaks are allowed but not necessary.
  • Your manuscript must be submitted in a text based file such as .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt, .wps to be accepted by us.  DO NOT submit any other format, all other formats will be rejected.
