The Writing Life
Writers, Inc., prefers to receive electronic
submissions; however, our
editors will accept hard-copy submissions
via regular mail.
How to Submit Your Manuscript
- For best results, save your document in
Microsoft Word. If you do not have Microsoft
Word, save your document
in Rich Text Format (RTF).
- Email IFWeditors@gmail.com
and include your document as an attached
file. DO NOT SEND YOUR
DOCUMENT IN THE TEXT OF THE EMAIL. Please
address any questions or
special concerns in the text of the email,
- Send your payment.
- If you have any questions, please contact
If you do not receive a
response within 24 business hours, send
another email. Please note that
we do not check email on Sundays.
- We will acknowledge receipt of your
payment with 24 hours.
How to Submit Your Hard Copy Via Regular
- Send a
typed, and readable COPY of your manuscript.
Double-space the text and
use 12-point or greater font for the text.
We prefer COURIER or TIMES
NEW ROMAN fonts, but we'll accept any
clearly readable font. Leave an
ample margin (about 1 ½ inches) all the way
manuscript so we have room to write notes
and comments. Please print on
one side of the page only. It isn't
to bind your document in any way (staple,
paper clip, etc.).
- DO NOT
ONLY COPY OR ONE YOU DO NOT WANT MARKED.

signature required. This will
delay the receipt of your document. If
