Entries MUST be in an .RTF (rich text format) file. Header on manuscript and synopsis pages
should contain title and category in the upper left corner and the page number in the upper right.
A category subgenre (i.e. “Historical,” “Time Travel,” “Young Adult,” etc. ) may but need not be
included in the header. Author’s name must not appear anywhere on the manuscript or synopsis,
or the entry will be disqualified.
Entries must be in New Times Roman 12 or 14 or in Courier 12 with one inch margins. Every
attempt should be taken to maintain proper formatting and readiness for printing. Final round
judges may ask for print for the finalist’s entries.
