Nearly every publisher, no matter how big or small, has guidelines for manuscript submissions. Green Hill Publishing is no different. Read this blog and learn about our submission guidelines and how to use our templates. 

Correctly name your files.

To help our designers navigate your files, please follow the steps below to save your manuscript and images correctly

1. Naming your manuscript

    • All images and captions are to be inserted in the manuscript (if images are present in the text)
    • Ensure the manuscript is styled in accordance with our Green Hill Submission Guideline Documents.
    • Save your manuscript as a singular Microsoft Word Document (.docx)
    • Name your manuscript document in the following way: FirstnameLastname_ManuscriptTitle_ddmmyy (eg. JohnSmith_TheGreen_220323)

2. Naming your images and graphics

    • The quality of the images must be 300dpi or more to maintain quality
    • If images are present in the manuscript itself, make sure they are at 100% size. Do not enlarge or shrink images.
    • If you intend an image to be full page, if must have a 3mm bleed allowance.
    • Image documents are to be titled with the page they appear on and their caption (e.g. 12 Our childhood home)
    • All images are to be submitted as jpg, tiff, or psd files only.
