A useful link for writers who want to format stories,novels and scripts

Recently a story of mine was accepted for an anthology. The editor thanked me for the story and then politely asked that next time I format it properly. I hadn't seen any specific request for a format in the call for submissions so I queried what was required and was told "industry standard formating."

Well, now I know what that means.

There is a helpful page on the BBC site, together with free software that has templates and shortcuts designed to help make your stories, novels and scripts stand more chance of being accepted.
