There is a near-unlimited amount of reference material online and in printed form regarding writing, editing, publishing, the business of books, and marketing. We obviously can’t capture that all, but Sterling Editing will put up additional reference resources we feel the community needs for free as we see fit.

Standard Manuscript Format

What the heck is “standard manuscript format?” How big do my margins have to be? Do I single- or double-space my manuscript? What font should I use? How big of the font-face should things be?

If you have questions like these, we have answers. Head over to the Standard Manuscript Format page for details on what we expect when you submit your manuscript to Sterling Editing. They fall in line with what other industry professionals expect, though there are some slight variations here and there.
