How to Use the Poetry Templates

Here are four Word templates which can be used to put together either small poetry submissions or whole manuscripts. The templates use a dynamic table of contents and come in both Calibri and Times New Roman fonts. To use the templates follow the examples inside the templates. For the smaller collection use the Normal style for the poem body and Heading 1 for the poem title. For the manuscript template use the Normal style for poem body, Heading 2 for the poem titles and Heading 1 for the section titles. Once the poems and/or sections are in place, put your cursor in the table of contents and refresh the table by hitting F9 on the keyboard. This will update the pagination and text of the table.
