Believe it or not, just like your English homework, you need to format you story/novel/poetry submission. The link also has a link to how to set up each template if you have trouble.
Story (works for flash fiction, short story and possibly novelete & novella)
Novel (works for over 60,000 words; possibly novellas)
Poerty Format (works for one page poems, if the poem is longer, copy the page header the story format uses).
Hope this helps - it certainly helped me. I'll go more into submission format details and the underlining argument next week.
