Home \ Resources \ Publishing and Distribution \ Layout and Formatting

Layout and Formatting

Formatting refers to the way you enter paragraph and line breaks, indents, spaces, typefaces and punctuation marks. By observing a few basic text-formatting rules, you can help us transform the pages of your manuscript into a final book that looks attractive and professional.

Paragraph Breaks and Indents
To view all of the spaces, hard returns and tabbed areas in your manuscript as symbols, select the Show All character (¶) in your Microsoft Word toolbar. If you can’t find this character in your toolbar, hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys and press the 8/* for the same results.

Paragraphs are separated with one paragraph mark (¶). This is also referred to as a hard return, usually accessed by pressing Enter on your keyboard. Lines within a paragraph must continue (or wrap) at the margin; lines should not be broken with paragraph marks or manual line breaks.

First-Line Indents
The first paragraph in each chapter or part should not be indented. However, the first line of all other paragraphs should be indented with one tab.

To indent a block of text, such as a passage from a referenced source, highlight the section of text you want indented, select “Format” in the toolbar and  choose the “Paragraph” option in most word processors. Indent the paragraph on the left and right each by one-half of an inch (0.5″).

Single-Line Indents
To indent individual lines, such as in a poem or a recipe, use two tabs.

Dashes, Hyphens, and Ellipses
Dashes, ellipses, and other special characters are found under the “Insert” menu of your word-processing program, under “Symbol/Special Characters.” (See the punctuation section of Part III to learn more about when to use these marks.)

Do Not Use Double Dashes (–) to express a pause in a thought or duration of time. Instead, use the longest dash, called an em dash (—) or an ellipsis (…) to separate thoughts or clauses within a sentence. To type an em dash, hold the Ctrl and the Alt key and type a hyphen, or hold down the Alt key while typing 0151. See instructions below for typing an ellipsis.

Use En Dashes (–) (the longer dash) to separate periods of time or numbers. To type an en dash, hold the Ctrl key and type a hyphen, or hold down the Alt key while typing 0150.

Use Hyphens (-) (on your keyboard) to separate two words that are usually linked with a hyphen.

Ellipses Hold Ctrl + Alt + the period key.

By going to the font settings in your word-processing software (under “Format” in the toolbar), or by holding down Ctrl + i, you may apply italic type for the following reasons:

  • Titles of books, magazine articles, movies, plays, television shows, and other titles of major works
  • Words with emphasis (use sparingly)
  • Foreign words and phrases


Formatting to Avoid

Do not use all caps for emphasis, for titles or for contents pages. WORDS TYPED IN ALL CAPS ARE DIFFICULT TO READ. Use italics instead.

Underlined text usually looks old-fashioned. Use italics to express emphasis or to indicate key terms instead, but even then, use sparingly.

Centered Text
Limit the use of centered text. It looks overly formal and can be hard to read.

Manual Hyphenation
Do not manually hyphenate words that break at the end of a line. Both your word-processing software and our book-design software will automatically hyphenate words when necessary.

Quotation Marks
Straight quotation marks (“) are not acceptable substitutions for traditional quotation marks (“). When straight quotes appear, please exchange them with “curly” quotes (called smart quotes). Microsoft Word may be set to display smart quotes by default through the AutoCorrect menu. Please consult the Help menu of your word-processing software for more information. Or correct individual straight quotation marks as follows: for a smart open quote, press Alt + 0147. For a smart closed quote, press Alt + 0148.

Battle For The Net

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

Get creative! Don’t let us tell you what to do. See you on the net September 10th!

About Poetry Magazine : Poetry magazine : Published by the Poetry Foundation

About Poetry Magazine : Poetry magazine : Published by the Poetry Foundation.


August 7, 2015


Alice James Books is a nonprofit poetry press, founded in 1973 by five women and two men: Patricia Cumming, Marjorie Fletcher, Jean Pedrick, Lee Rudolph, Ron Schreiber, Betsy Sholl and Cornelia Veenendaal. Their objectives were to give women access to publishing and to involve authors in the publishing process.

In 1994, the press moved from Harvard Square to Farmington, ME and became affiliated with the University of Maine at Farmington. The press educates up to 14 interns per year through individual writing apprenticeships.

In 2014, after celebrating its anniversary with the release of an anthology celebrating 40 years of AJB poetry, the press revised its cooperative structure to allow the separation of the editorial and business boards of the press. The aim of the separation is to allow greater focus on the individual goals of these two boards, while strengthening the financial health and viability of the press.

The press remains true to its original mission to publish and support women poets. It also is committed to publishing a diversity of poets including both beginning and established poets, and a diversity of poetic voices and styles by men, women, and transgendered poets of all ethnic backgrounds.
