Writing for Mobile
How to write gripping content for easy mobile reading
We know that we’re all reading more often on small mobile devices, rather than on a printed page. We know that this changes the way we read. Yet most writers still write ‘for print,’ using writing techniques, styles and rules created for another age and other media.
It’s time to write differently.
This book will show you how.
Whether you’re writing a book, business report, school essay, article or any other long text, whether it’s 3 pages or 300, there’s an increasingly strong chance that it will be read on a mobile device. WRITING FOR MOBILE provides practical guidance, solid advice and new tools to help you write captivating content that’s easy to read on the small screens of smartphones and ereaders.
It describes, step by step, a new method to structure, write and format any non-fiction text. This method will help you write texts that are easier to read and that will hold readers’ attention for longer.
It’s a short how-to guide designed for quick and easy reading – even on your phone – but packed with practical information and tips.
WRITING FOR MOBILE covers how to:
- write text that’s easy to read fast

Moreover, the WRITING FOR MOBILE method also works for text written for print or large screens.
