Task 2: an online article for a website
Another form or genre you might be commissioned to write is an article for a website. For this, you need to start by asking yourself how is writing for the web different to writing for a newspaper or magazine?
Have a look at a few websites. How is the writing laid out? How is it presented?
Unlike books or newspapers, the internet is an interactive medium. Users (the audience) will not want to stay on one page for a long time, which means you need to be clear in your ideas and layout. Know what people want to know about and help them find it. If you do, they'll like your writing and come back to the website for more.
