Writing Tip of the Day-Manuscript Formatting

Margins for manuscripts should be set at one inch on all four sides, top, bottom, left and right, when using a standard manuscript font such as Courier New at 12 points. Wider margins of 1.25 to 1.5 may be used for more compact fonts such as Times New Roman. Ideal margins once resulted in 250 words per page, but the computer word counts used today make this less essential.
