India Writing Project: Guide for Post-Registration and Pre-Submission

What file formats are accepted for submissions?

In the India Writing Project, we do not require specific file formats for submissions. Our submission portal provides a space where you can either copy-paste your piece or type it in directly. This helps to maintain a uniform format for all submissions, and ensures that no additional formatting from platforms such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs is carried over. This means you do not need to worry about file compatibility issues - just focus on your writing!
