Hot Tips: How To Write A Successful Article or Tutorial

 

  • Create a catchy title. For example, instead of ‘Polymer Clay Ornament,’ try ‘How to make a Gorgeous Winter Scene Bauble.’

  • Think about opening with an inspiring quote that relates to your work or topic.

  • Offer tips and tools for the reader to implement in their own crafting. Give them something to think about and learn from.

  • Use subheadings, bolded parts and/or bullet points to highlight key points or phrases.

  • Write short paragraphs, this allows it to flow better and read easier.

  • Read this article by Sage Bray- one of the best advice articles out there about getting published in polymer clay.
