QUESTION: Should manuscripts be stapled or paper-clipped?

ANSWER:  Both are acceptable, though stapling the entry pages together and affixing the entry form and check with a paperclip is preferred.  Stapled entry pages reduce the risk of any pages getting lost in the shuffle.  If we feel like a manuscript needs a staple, we'll add one at no charge.  But we don't go so extreme as to discard entries that lack a staple or paperclip.  We just add them where they're needed.

Of course, the best way to avoid any staple or paperclip issues is to submit your entries online via Submittable.
