Page Layout ::

Fine Lines prose submissions must be single-spaced in 10- or 12-point Times New Roman font with one–inch margins. Paragraphs should be in block format, including one space between each one. Submissions should be left aligned with only one space after all punctuation.

We ask that writers carefully edit all poetry submissions. Often times, word processing programs will automatically edit poetry (i.e. capitalize the first letters of lines that follow the press of “enter”) when the author does not intend it. When submitting poetry, please include additional instructions as to formatting issues. Otherwise, we will follow the above prose layout for all poetry submissions.

Fine Lines accepts submissions in many forms, but we prefer electronic submissions, whether by email or by disk/CD. With several different word processing programs available, we ask that all electronic submissions be saved as .rtf files (rich text format).
