Writing for the iPad

Writing for websites and for magazines for tablet devices indeed, is very different to writing for print publications. Simply put, visitors to a website scan content rather than read the screen in detail.

Time Management Magazine has compiled a list of tips to aid Contributors in writing in an effective manner for the iPad:

For further help, there are many articles published on the internet about writing with clarity, purpose, persuasion and influence. (Enter the keyword “writing for the web” in Google.)

Time Management Magazine publishes articles which are practical nature, offer solutions, bring awareness, or teach in a step-by-step format, and that conform to high professional writing standards. Our aim is to bring the best information available on the web, together in one place. We seek to give our readers content that they can enjoy, wherever in the world they may be.

Tip: Controversial or opinionated articles are not desirable.

Website Linking
