How should I format my manuscript?

Before sending me your manuscript, please follow these formatting guidelines:

  • Use Times New Roman, 12 point font.
  • Double-space all text (with no extra line spaces between paragraphs).
  • Add one space between sentences, not two (you can use the “Find and Replace” function in Microsoft Word if you’ve used two spaces throughout).
  • Indent the first line of each paragraph 1/2 inch.
  • Set all margins to one inch.
  • Align the text left (leave a “ragged” edge on the right side).

Thank you!
