How to Format an Email Submission

  • Format your work as you would any email or webpage.

In other words,

  • single-space
  • double-space (be sure to hit ‘enter’ twice) between paragraphs or stanzas

For best readability:

  • use a sans-serif font (your email’s default font is fine)
  • turn off auto-formatting (e.g. smart quotes) in your word processor as these characters often do not display correctly
