    Thanks again for using my poem, “Up Late, Reading” in Paper Nautilus. I am thinking of entering your chapbook contest but would first like to know this: what size font do you use in the chapbooks? Your journal is lovely but my eyes – and those of many who like to read my work – are getting old! I’m afraid the font in the issue you sent me is a little small, if I’m going to enter the contest. Thanks in advance for getting back to me.

    • Marjorie, we would love to see your work for the chapbook collection. We normally print with a standard font (Times New Roman, Garamond, Georgia, etc.) between 11 and 13 point. I know that’s a bit small for some readers’ eyes – more often than not, my own eyes included! Once we select a winner, we’re always happy to work as closely with the writer as possible to make sure that they’re happy with the publication; if a writer wanted larger font for his/her chapbook, we’d try to come up with a solution that worked for everyone involved. Hope that helps!
