Table of Contents Issue

Hello - am having table of contents issues with my collection of performance poems and genuinely at a loss as to why this is. Would be immensely grateful if someone could have a look, it'll probably be something really obvious.

Will mention you on the thanks page, goes without saying!!

Many Thanks in advance.

    Assign a Heading Style 1 to the title of your book and the first line of the copyright notice and you will be good to go.
  • Thanks - have done that or at least thought I had, any chance you could have a glance at the file attached? Should be a thirty second thing if you know...

    You didn’t say if this was for a print book or for an ebook.

    To generate a table of contents for a print book first highlight the name of each chapter (in this case poem) then click on Heading 1 in the ribbon of the Home tab. Now, on the page you wish the table of contents to appear on, type Table of Contents and then place the cursor underneath this. Then click on References / Table of Contents / Custom Table of Contents. I did not see any page numbers in your document so untick Show Page Numbers and then set Show Levels (under General) to 1 and OK.

    For an ebook highlight the name of the book, the first line of the copyright notice and the name of each poem and set these to Heading 1. Lulu will generate the table of contents automatically for you.

    So oncewas solved your problem and your poems are interesting. I just thought this website might be helpful if you intend to sell your performance poetry. https://edubirdie.com/blog/punctuation-in-poetry    However this site says don't bother with grammar.  https://www.writingforward.com/poetry-writing/breaking-grammar-rules-in-poetry-writing  It's up to you GOOD LUCK. It's good to see poetry on Lulu.
