A note on formatting – please take this seriously

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, but NOT justified
  • italics and bold

WE CANNOT ADD WHITE SPACE BETWEEN WORDS WITHIN A LINE.

WE CANNOT ZIG ZAG LINES DOWN THE PAGE.

WE CANNOT CREATE DRAWINGS WITH WORDS.

  • If you have an artistic layout this probably is not the best journal for your submission.
  • We are limited by the styles available through the website software and do not have the same level of control afforded in paper-based publications.
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.
