Guidelines for formatting your manuscript
Make sure that your manuscript is double spaced
Paragraphs should not be indented with spaces, instead set your processor indentation at .5. If you're using a newer version of Word, you can set this by clicking on "Paragraph" on the "Home" tab and a window will pop up. Then under "Indentation" you'll find the section titled "Special", select "First Line" and then you'll find the section titled "By", select ".5"
Use page breaks to break up chapters, not extra spaces
Do not incert headers, footers, or page numbers
Only submit word files (Microsoft Word or Open Office)
