Submissions Week Day One: General Formatting

Submissions Week

Hey all,

Welcome to our second annual submissions week – were we’ll talk about all things submissions. This is a great opportunity for our newer authors to learn things from our veterans – how to prepare your story (whether it’s a short story, a novella, a novel, poem etc) for submission to a publisher.

We’ll start off the week with the basics – formatting your manuscript. Any experienced author will tell you that the first rule is to follow the publisher guidelines. Skip those and your manuscript may not even make the slush pile.

But what are some other tips from our experts here? How do you get your document from a non-Word format into Word in one piece if you use a different word processor? Are there shortcuts to prepping your manuscript? What steps do you take to ensure it is formatted correctly before sending it off?

Let’s discuss!
