3. We kindly ask contributors to use the following conventions when preparing pieces for the journal. 

 

  • Please submit as a Word or Rich Text file (not PDF). 

  • Please use Times New Roman, font 12, for all text, 1.5 spaced, with paragraphs indented by 0.5 inch (but no indentation for the first paragraph.

  • To indicate short citations (of less than 40 words), enclose the quotation within single quotation marks.

  • When using short (fewer than three lines of verse) quotations from poetry, mark breaks with a slash, ( / ), at the end of each line of verse

  • For quotations that are more than 40 words of prose or three lines of verse, place quotations in a free-standing block of text and omit quotation marks

  • If you omit anything from a quotation, you should indicate the deleted word or words by using ellipsis contained in square brackets: […].

  • Please indicate the source of all quotations using footnotes (not endnotes).

  • The footnote should contain, in this order: the author’s name: title of the work cited, the place and name of publisher, the date of publication and the number of the page from which the citation is taken. For example:  Siegfried Sassoon, Siegfried’s Journey (London: Faber and Faber, 1945) p.10.

  • Subsequent references to the same source can then be limited to title and page number. Quotations from unpublished material should be identified as such in a footnote.
