I am currently preparing to submit a children's manuscript and I'm having trouble with the format. I submitted it to a few publishers last year, but now that I've revised and polished the story I feel my cover letter and manuscript could use a LOT of work. Here's what I'm confused about: I've read that the manuscript should be double-spaced. However, my story is a rhyming story and therefore is broken up into rhyming segments. Should I format the manuscript so that these segments are chunked together...and if not, how should I format it? How nitpicky are publishers about the formatting of a typed manuscript?
