Tips for Good Writing:

  • Hook your reader with the first sentence.
  • Write in a conversational tone – as if you were talking one-on-one with a friend.
  • Use strong action verbs.
  • Use realistic dialogue.
  • Use vivid descriptions to help your reader visualize what you’re trying to say.
  • Use of bullets, lists and short paragraphs is highly encouraged as it makes reading much easier.

Manuscript Checklist:

  • Articles should be 500-900 words in length.  If you aren’t sure what your word count is, this Word Count Tool is handy: http://www.wordcounttool.com/
