For Stories That Give Advice: Be Concise, Actionable, and Targeted

Tips from Medium’s Platform Editors

Concise

Actionable

Targeted

Bonus: Voice

Bring in lessons from other sources too. While you’ve found the answers, you didn’t always have them. Show that you yourself are learning. I know I couldn’t have written this alone.
