Once you've gotten the go-ahead on a story, how do your format it for submission and how do or do you include sidebar information if you have it?
I think that every writer has his or her own way of formatting, and I don't think that there is a truly wrong way to go about this, but that said, here's how I set up my stories:
Greatest Article Ever Written: Allison Winn Scotch, Genius Magazine, December 2007
(Note: the above is the publication date, not the date that I hand it it)
Text, text, text that is written in Times font, size 12 and double spaced or 1.5 spaced
End of text
Sidebar: Why this story is so genius
Text, text, text
And that's it! Sort of common sense, and unless you turn your piece in on paper with unicorns in the background, I think you'll be okay.
But writers, I'm curious: how do you format your pieces when you hand them in? I know that everyone does it differently!
