Technical Guidelines

Word Count and Page Size

You can use your word processor’s word count to determine the size of your article.

If you don’t have a word processor, Google Docs offers a free online word processor that provides a word count (http://docs.google.com).

 

Page Size Column Size Word Count Character Count
Quarter-Page Half a Column About 270 Words About 1500 Characters
Half-Page One Column About 540 Words About 3000 Characters
Full-Page Two Columns About 1080 Words About 6000 Characters

 

NOTE: These word counts don’t include photographs. A photo typically uses about 100-150 words in the newsletter, or about 1/6 to 1/4 of a column. Keep in mind that text must be shorter if there are images in the article.

Images

Please send photos as “Large” or “Original” size. (“Small” or “Medium” are too small.)

“Large” will usually be big enough for all pages except for the cover, where the “Original” sized image is preferred.

There’s no need to convert photos to black and white.
