Recommended Resource: Proper Manuscript Format

While submitting my short fiction to various markets, I noticed that some markets required that all submissions be sent in proper manuscript format. And although there are plenty of places that are less picky, I feel that submitting your material in this format makes it look just a little more professional. Fortunately, there’s a great website out there put out by William Shunn that gives a great guide.

Here is the link for short stories.

Here is the link for novels.

Hope you find this useful! I’m currently translating my work in process (LD2) over to this format.
