Writers’ Guidelines

At the top left-hand corner of your manuscript, write your name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address.  At the top right-hand corner, write the words First Rights, and beneath that the number of words in your story.


A brief cover letter should state the title of the work, your publishing history, and any other relevant information.


The manuscript, in WORD format, should be double-spaced, with paragraphs indented.


Be mindful to use UK spellings (labour, harbour, enquire) and punctuation (no periods after Mr, Mrs, Dr, and other abbreviations).
