Here are some formatting tips on how to hand in your articles to our editors:
Please submit a Microsoft Word document with the following information at the top.
Your text (which we also call “copy”) is next. Remember to use paragraphs. Do not insert the pictures into the word document itself, as our designers will decide where to insert them. Remember to include the details that answer the six questions: who, what, when, where, why and how.
Email the Word document to [email protected] and attach your pictures as separate files. In the subject line, please put the content summary you listed at the top of your article (eg Taylor Swift concert review). This is very important as we get a lot of emails every day and want to be sure we recognise your assignment when you submit it.
If you have any questions about the formatting or the process of how to submit your article, please email [email protected]. For specific writing guides on different types of articles, please check out our guide on how to write for Young Post section.
