Writing format and style
Format and writing style is about more than just looks. How you format your writing might make the difference between people reading your article or passing it by.
One of the trickiest parts of news writing is keeping things brief and to the point.
Stylistically this means paragraphs that don’t exceed two sentences. While it seems excessive, if you read any major newspaper you will realize that this rule is nearly universal.
By adding whitespace an article seems more readable; huge paragraphs deter readers.
Good grammar, spelling and punctuation, is another important part of having your work read. Proofread your work, or have another person proofread it.
If you have no one to proofread your work we, at The Sacramento Press, will proofread your work for you. To do this, simply send us your article at email@example.com.
We will edit your work and send you the edited version. Our goal is not to change your message, just to make it the best version of your work possible.
There are many more style guidelines that we abide by here at The Sacramento Press and in the next update I will post a list of the most important of those guidelines.
