Guidelines from the College: Aim for 400 to 600 words. People will read longer content if it's compelling and if it's not intimidating long at first glance. If you keep your paragraphs reasonably short (40-50 words, generally), the story may be longer (up to 1,600 words). The title and first sentence are key. The website blocks will pull the title and first sentence, so the first sentence should be designed to pull in readers and convince them to click through to read the whole story. Include quotations from participants where relevant. Upload images below, preferrably with a 16:9 landscaped aspect ratio. (We will add "pull quotes" and images as well as sub-headings to break up the copy.) Keep the college’s “key messages” in mind while writing stories: world-leading faculty at the forefront of intellectual and interdisciplinary innovation; purposeful scholarship, research and technology; extensive partnerships with communities, nonprofits, universities, businesses and governments; and the well-established leader in experiential education. Be sure to include all pertinent information, including specific people or institutions involved, relevant dates or semester, and quotes from participants.
