Articles should be submitted as a Microsoft Word document (.docx) attachment by email to editor@TheTypescript.com. The Typescript uses University of Chicago style for essays and AP style for news and feature articles. Please use American spellings, and observe the following conventions:

Line Spacing: Single-spaced, with a 1-line, or 12-point paragraph space after each paragraph. Please do not insert extra carriage returns between paragraphs. Please do not indent first line.

Titles: Book, film, album, and major work titles are italicized. Essay, short story, song,  newspaper article, and minor work titles are in quotation marks. Thus: the Adventures of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and “Starman.”

Punctuation: Use the Oxford comma, and insert a single space after a period.

Hyperlinks: We encourage the use of hyperlinks in articles. Writers should use the insert-link function in  Microsoft Word, or type the link text between carat brackets, after the link text. Thus, format a link to The Typescript <http://TheTypescript.com>.
