Bite Size Writing Tips

Perfect Paragraphs

If you’re writing an article or story for a magazine, think about your paragraph lengths. When you send your work out, your pages are A4 size. The lengths of your paragraphs may look short on a page that size but imagine them in a newspaper or magazine. You can fit about 16 words or so into a single sentence of A4, but in a newspaper/magazine, this is more than halved, meaning your paragraphs will be much longer in the publication.

Some newspapers use very short paragraphs, often only one sentence in length, so check the publication you’re writing for carefully and bear it in mind when working on your full piece.

    Good advice. And in reality, words on an a4 page will look different in a boom too, so it’s good to be mindful no matter what you are writing!!/
