How to plan an article – The Go Editorial Roundtable

How to plan an article – The Go Editorial Roundtable

We can all agree that creating a plan is a vital part of any writer’s workflow. A writer who is able to sit down and put their preliminary thoughts to paper before they complete a piece will often get their message across more effectively than one who doesn’t.

But a problem many writers face is understanding how to create a plan in the first place. While there are plenty of conversations about how to tweak and improve the writing in a final piece, there are fewer about how to fit together the nuts and bolts of an argument in a way that’ll hold under pressure.

That’s why we decided to make “how do you plan an article” the first question that the Go Editorial Roundtable had to answer to do just that.

So what advice did our experts provide to writers the world over needing help creating a master plan? And what lessons can we learn from their collective experience? Let’s find out.

Creating a voice for a brand – five steps to help your business communicate more effectively

Creating a voice for a brand – five steps to help your business communicate more effectively

The best brands are those that have a distinctive and recognisable voice. Brands that are able to convey what they are all about through their copy and adverts tend to be the ones you remember, rather than the dreary characterless competitors. But creating a voice for a brand can be tricky. While we can accept that a zany voiceRead more about Creating a voice for a brand – five steps to help your business communicate more effectively[…]

How to pitch a guest post to a media publication

How to pitch a guest post to a media publication

Pitching articles to publications is a great way for content marketers to get people reading their stuff.

With sites like Venturebeat and TechCrunch actively sourcing guest posts to fill gaps in their schedules, a well-timed and perfectly crafted pitch could propel a prospective article onto the front page of the internet.

The challenge facing most content writers is working out how to pitch an article effectively. Pitching isn’t easy and it certainly is much harder if you’ve never had to do it before.

Fortunately, I’ve been (un)lucky enough to have spent most of the past three years pitching businesses and sites with article ideas that have ended up online. So here are five Go Editorial approved tips on pitching that will, hopefully, help you secure valuable guest posting opportunities for your business in the future.

The Go Editorial Roundtable – Writers invited to join our monthly advice panel

So, I was thinking about running a monthly advice column to help people out with their writing queries. While this sounded like an excellent idea – particularly because I love advice columns – I also realised that it’d be a little bit dull and rather presumptuous to assume that my opinion would be the only thingRead more about The Go Editorial Roundtable – Writers invited to join our monthly advice panel[…]

Get into games journalism – how to break into an entertaining (but highly competitive) sector

Get into games journalism – how to break into an entertaining (but highly competitive) sector

In September, I gave a talk at EGX in UKIE’s career area about how to get into games journalism. After many months – and a bit of editing – I’ve finally gotten round to putting the text online.

A couple of things to note. First, this is adapted from a talk and should (hopefully) read like it. That means it is a little more throwaway and a little less detailed than a fully structured piece, so please treat it accordingly.

Second, the talk was intended as a personal account of how to get into the industry. While I hope this is useful, it is also worth remembering this is just my opinion and that it will undoubtedly be deficient in a number of ways.

And third, I’ve cut the bit introducing me to save time. So you should go straight into the article around about…now.

In this talk I’ll try to explain to you whether or not its worth being a games journalist, give you a look over the landscape to help you understand where you might fit in if you do go into it, and finish off by giving you advice on how to get into the industry.
