Manuscript guidelines

Font and page formatting should be kept to a minimum, used only as necessary for the content of the story and material.

We recommend using a 12 point font. We also recommend using an easy-to-read serif based font such as Times New Roman, Baskerville Old Face, Book Antiqua, Goudy Old Style, Garamond, and Century.

Any images that are being included in the manuscript should be compressed to allow for smaller file sizes on upload.

Beta|Read will only accept manuscripts submitted in standard PDF format. Any other format will be rejected and services will not be performed. Password secured PDF manuscripts will also be rejected until a standard PDF version is submitted.

Word count, not page count, determines Beta|Read’s price levels.
