  1. May I submit poetry as jpeg images? If not, what are the formatting criteria? Font and size required? Margins?


    1. Yes, a jpeg is fine! It will be printed, so a higher quality image is always better. There are no specific formatting criteria for non-image submissions, but the anthology will be printed on 8.5×11″ pages. If you’d like something larger than that for the display, you can mail it to us or drop it off at our offices.
