As sometimes email transfers cause formatted poems to re-align or present random results we ask that you do not format your poems at all. Simply type them in like a normal email and use slashes [/] to indicate line breaks, double slashes [//] to indicate stanza breaks and bracketed instructions to indicate spacing or indenting of lines ie. [3]. Also, don’t use the CTRL key to create type. It translates through email in random ways. We end up with dashes [-] as question [?] marks or apostrophes [‘] as commas [,] or greek letters. We have a standard format you can see throughout the magazine to keep its contents consistent, please help us help you in keeping your poem looking right. Thanks!
