Perfecting the Paragraph

Here are the keys to well-built paragraphs:

  • A paragraph should have only one point.
  • Structure a paragraph to leave the reader with the take-away message.
  • Build each sentence on the previous one.

In a recent workshop on writing and editing, we discussed how to apply these rules to some excerpts from magazine articles. Please download our paragraph structure handout (a PDF document).
