General Fiction & Literary Non-Fiction Guidelines:

Double-spaced.

Font: keep it conventional. If you want to be taken seriously out there in the publishing world, stick to conventional fonts, styles, and sizes.

Size: 12
Type: Times or Times New Roman
No crazy colors. No giant titles.

A word about profanity… we are a high school literary magazine and we can’t print profanity. I know, I know, sometimes it fits the situation. Unfortunately, we cannot accept it.

Guidelines for Poetry Submissions
For poems, you can send up to five poems if you’re not submitting in another category.
Poems must be spaced as you want them to appear in print. If it’s supposed to be single spaced, make sure it is submitted that way. A word about centering: It’s mostly the mark of a rookie writer. If you choose to center your poem, you should have a pretty compelling reason for centering it. If your reason is because you think it looks good that way, it’s not a good enough reason.
