Submission Formatting Requirements

Submission Formatting Requirements

We accept .doc, .docx, and .rtf files. Please send them as attachments to the email address provided for anthology submissions. Please do not paste them into the email. Do please include your name and email address at the start of the manuscript. While not required, the word length of a prose piece is good to know.

Format your piece in 12-point Times New Roman or Courier, double spaced, with initial 0.5” indents, and 1” margins. Poems do not have to be double spaced.

Send your manuscript as .doc, .docx, or .rtf. We are unable to work with other formats.

If you are submitting more than one piece, please do so as separate documents with the title of the piece in the attachment title.

Our general submissions email address is submissions@darkhousebooks.com.

However – every call for submissions going forward will have a unique address for that anthology, and things will go smoother if you use it for your submission.
