The 1-Minute Hack to Better Stories

One of the things I hear most frequently from readers is they want more hacks–more small things that they can implement immediately to improve their content, their magazine, and their design today.

So today, I’m thrilled to share with you a small experiment I’m trying: a series of short videos (60-90 seconds) that share a single improvement that you can make to your content to improve it.

The first one is a non-intuitive editing hack I learned from an editor years ago.

You can use it to make at least one — and probably more than one! — of your stories better in about 10 seconds.
