PREFERRED FORMAT FOR PAPERS
All papers presented to the Chicago Literary Club are preserved in the Special Collections Section of the Newberry Library. For this purpose, presenters are requested to observe the following format:
1. White paper, 8-1/2 by 11 inches, with a 1 inch margin on all sides and Arabic page numbers in the upper right-hand corner or centered at the bottom of the page.
2. Legible manuscript, or typeset double spaced, in dark ink.
3. A plain title page preceding the first page of the text and bearing the title, presenter's name, date presented and the words "The Chicago Literary Club."
4. Pages are not to be stapled together. A cover or binder is not needed.
The Club assumes no responsibility for copyright protection. If the presenter desires such protection, the symbol ©, †followed by the year of first publication and the presenterís name, should be placed on the title page of the paper.
Two copies of the paper, in the above format, should be delivered to the Secretary the evening the paper is presented.
If the author wishes to have the paper published on the Club's website, a copy should be sent via email to the Webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org or given to the Webmaster on diskette or CD. Disks will not be returned. Microsoft Word is the preferred format, but WordPerfect and Adobe Acrobat are acceptable. The entire paper must be included in one complete file, including title page, essay, footnotes, and any bibliographies or appendices. Papers are posted as submitted; the Club does not edit for grammar, spelling, or format.
