Hone Your Craft

Some simple writing tips from Em & En Word Craft:
• For journalists, articles should follow the ‘inverted pyramid’ structure: begin with the most important parts of your story – the who, what, where, why, when and how – followed by the details to flesh out this summary. Conclude with a broader context or background information.
• Use inclusive language. Be mindful of using gendered terms or any words that exclude groups of people.
• If you can express a point in fewer words, go for the shorter version. It carries more of a punch.
• Use active case, not passive unless you have to.file000321624439
