Hi All,

When submitting entries, I was wondering if there was a preference to underline or italicize words which are meant to appear italicized in the published copy.

I've just submitted my first Flash Fiction Entry in Courier New with italics underlined—will this be acceptable to the judges, or should I resubmit in Times New Roman with italics italicized?

I'm pretty sure you're safe with italicizing (there were no specifications to that degree in the rules). Besides, italics looks better than underline.
