    Submission format for poetry

    So I know to put all the contact info at the top, and single-spacing for poetry, but what about when you are submitting a batch of 5-8 poems (many are very short)? I'm assuming that each poem gets its own page, but does each one have all the contact info, or just the first page? It seems to me that it would be easy for them to get separated, and it doesn't actually take up much room to just include it.

    Hey Angelica, Usually submission guidelines will state how they want the contact data - some don't want it in the attachment at all but in the body of the email. Some want the poems in the body and include a bio with contact info. This is for electronic submissions

    for print submissions, what i usually do is put my contact info on the first page and then just put my name in the header section of each following page with one poem per page
