Formatting your creative writing for submission can be frustrating. Have you ever wondered  how to create a header in Microsoft Word without said header being on the first page? Have you ever wondered how to create a header without having to type in every single page number? Need some computer help?

If you’re submitting novels, poems, stories, or essays to literary agents or editors of literary journals, you’ll need to know how to properly format headers. Here are step-by-step instructions to create headers in Word:

1. In the View menu, click Header and Footer.

2. In the Header and Footer toolbar, click Page Setup (looks like an open book).

3. Click on the Layout tab.

4. Check the “Different first page” box, then click OK.

5. Go back into the first-page header and delete the text.

If you still find yourself frustrated by formatting issues and manuscript preparation, our expert proofreading staff can help. We will carefully proofread your submissions, format your novel, short story, or poetry to industry standards, and fix formatting issues (like creating headers and footers, correcting pagination, and adjusting margins). Your work will have the professional touch that editors and literary agents are looking for!

    Thank you. I have no trouble with grammar – was an English teacher. The technicalities of the computer sometimes give me trouble.
