The simple format is designed to make it easy for you to print on A4 sized paper. You can also get pages from the main site to print by going to the print icon below the main body of the text.

We have enlisted the help of a number of distinguished writers and publishing figures to develop our Writers' Resources. This part of the site has become a massive resource base for writers.
A former publisher, novelist and author of twelve books on writing, Michael Legat has produced for WritersServices a series of specially commissioned information-packed factsheets, which cover the essentials for writers.
A series of nineteen articles written by Chris Holifield, which explains the inside workings of the publishing business.
Writers Services Self-publishing offers a print on demand design and production service and a marketing service. This collection of forty-five articles explains how to prepare, publish and market a book. It includes many of the legal as well as the technical aspects of publication.

This should produce a neatly formatted page for standard European and US paper sizes. We have tried to make them fit onto a single page.

You can also cut and paste the text into documents for further processing as worksheets etc.
Use the 'preview' facility before printing to see how the page will look. You can then adjust the borders and margins.
