A note on formatting

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
  • white space within lines

BUT, 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.
