22 May Newsletter Contributor?
Do you ever send material to our hard-working Newsletter editors? When they see your articles coming in, do they smile? Or roll their eyes? You can make them smile if you know what makes them happy. One thing that makes them very happy is when you know their editorial style and follow their conventions. Look over the Newsletter Style Sheet by clicking this link. On this one-page sheet you will find guidance about writing times of day, dollar amounts, capitalizing and much more. If course you will already be familiar with the Newsletter Guidelines on page 90 of the 2016 Directory and Handbook, and also online at this location.
You can also compose articles for the Newsletter and/or the website using the “Newsletter or Website Composer”, which is linked as “Newsletter or Web Article” under the “Newsletter” drop-down on the website’s top menu — login required.
Make the editors smile when you email your articles! Don’t make them reach for the aspirin bottle!
