Suggestions for a Successful Article

For best results, keep your article pithy and of an appropriate length:

For announcements, begin with the most important information and work down to the least. Answer the questions who, what, where, what time, why, and how early in the article. For example, start out with something like:

    “The Book Club meets on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the UUFSD library.”
