Write-for-web Tutorials

Author Anne Lyken-Garner

I’ve created quite a number of writing-for-web tutorials which are scattered about on the internet. I thought it would be a useful to make them all accessible in one place. Here’s a list of some really helpful ones, designed for writers desiring to establish a platform of contacts and fans in the writing world of the web - a thriving and progressive community.

One of the requirements of modern agents and publishers, is for the new writers they take on to already have something called a ‘platform.’ What better way to establish one, than to use the internet to connect with potential fans from all over the world.

I created this first set of tutorials as a reference point for both writers seeking to better their use of the written English, and also for speakers of foreign languages learning to write English correctly.

The Art of written English

Written English Part 1: The apostrophe
Written English Part 2: The Comma and the Full Stop
Part 3: Semi colon and hyphen
Part 4: the dash, question mark and exclamation mark
Part 5: the inverted commas, brackets and capitalization

This second set of articles deals with getting your online content in shape. It discusses the value of adding friends to your network, and the art of sharp writing which attracts readers and keeps them hooked on your work. Issues of getting the right content to the right people, and how to keep topped-up on a good supply of ideas, are also tackled.
Skill and technique are examined, and several ways in which we can become the sought-after web writer that everyone wants to read. This is a definitive writing series for anyone serious about building a career in online writing.

How to make your online content earn you money and recognition

Part one - Why add friends
Part two - How to keep people reading your work
Part three - How to keep the ideas coming
Part four - Developing skill and technique
Part five - Setting out your article for internet skimming
