Hi. I’m writing this time to let you know that as of tomorrow our page size shrinks.. As a result we generally are shortening stories by 10%.
Most Sunday stories should run between 1000 and 1200 words. Most daily reviews should be 350 or so words.
These are rules of thumb and we can and should discuss in advance based on the story or event.
Let me know if you have questions.
