Deadline. That’s the first thing you need to know, because if you blow that, you’re finished.
But it also helps to learn the basics of how to write an article, what makes a great lead paragraph, how to make sure you’ve gotten the real story, getting the most out of quotes, and yes, to give your editor exactly what he or she is looking for, namely, a well-written article that grabs the reader, is the right length, and oh yes, did I mention in by deadline?
David Jón Fuller, Aqua Books Emerging Writer-in-Residence for January, was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
