How To Format an Article

Formatting an article--an article format is different depending on where you are sending it. If you are writing for the web, your article needs to be formatted for the website that you are writing for. It should include keywords from that site.
Most magazines have a set of guidelines that you can write, visit their web page or read in Writer's Market for specifics. Normally it should be double spaced, a size 12 font, and the style of font must be easily read, Times New Roman, is your best bet.
Most magazines accept submissions electronically, again you just have to check their guidelines, some will accept attachments, while others want you to cut and paste into the body of your email.
You will also need to provide a word count. You should always do a spell check and grammar check. Even if your copy is great, if you have misspellings and a lot of problems with grammar, most editors will hit the delete key! I hope this helps you. If you have more questions please feel free to ask!

Ciao for now!
