Manuscript Formatting

Utilize standard manuscript formatting when presenting your work at The Writer Workshop. Generally, when properly formatted, a manuscript page contains approximately 250 words.

Here are the basics:

  • 12 point font (preferably Times or Times New Roman)
  • 1 inch margins all around
  • Double Line Spacing
  • No extra spacing before or after paragraphs
  • Page number (usually in the top right corner) Optional, but appreciated
  • Continuous Line Numbers
