Tips to Write a School of Dragons Article

Here are a few of our top tips to keep in mind while writing your School of Dragons article:

  1. Write about a topic that you have direct experience with, and that you feel qualified to write about. Don’t ever hesitate to do the necessary research or pull from your experience with experiments you have tried in the past. Completing your article could even open your eyes up to new and fascinating discoveries.
  2. Stick to the prescribed word limit. As much as we’d like to hear from you in detail on your topic, we may not have the time to read, edit, and publish a five-page essay on it! To increase your chance of being featured, try to strike the right balance between being informative and descriptive, yet brief.
  3. Add pictures or videos to make your article interesting and more easily accessible to our shared audience. Original videos or pictures related to your topic can help your submission stand out among the rest! Just ensure that the video or picture belongs to you or that you have permission to submit it from the original owner. Also make sure that you are not revealing any personal information that can affect you or your kids’ online safety.
  4. Provide structure in your article. You are writing for an unknown audience and trying to capture their interest, so it is always best to follow common writing practices. Consider breaking your article into short paragraphs or include bullet points, numbering and sub-headings wherever necessary to break up the text and assure that your article is an easy read.
