We will make every effort to maintain the formatting you indicate in your submission, including:

  • caps (or lack thereof) in the title and/or text
  • indented paragraphs
  • centred paragraphs or right-aligned paragraphs
  • italics and bold

BUT, we are limited by the styles available through the website software.

We cannot create extra space within lines or unusual white space between lines. We do not have the same level of control that print on paper affords.

Special characters
  • Most special characters can be reproduced in the text of a poem.
  • Special characters (e.g. the ones that are found in ‘Symbols’) cannot be reproduced in the title field.
