A question about long articles
I have a question for the group — when (if ever) do you write and post long articles to your campus news communication venue? What length do you consider to be too long?
By articles, I mean communications we create and post to our tech news and information service. Most are either 400 to 600 words or much shorter. The few exceptions are generally complex topics or Q&As with key people at key moments. (Examples: a look at how much cyberinfrastructure the campus needs, and a Q&A with the campus chief security officer on his program, projects, and goals.)
We're discussing this in our shop. We want accessible and concise writing, of course, however long an article is.
