Non-traditional PS Formatting?
« on: December 09, 2006, 04:05:07 AM »
Is this generally a bad idea?  I've been an editor for multiple newsletters and campus newspaper publications, so I guess it just comes naturally to create blurbs and segmented or even columnated articles.  While writing my most recent PS, I happened to do just that on a whim, and I have to admit I like the way it looks.  The "goal" of the essay is separated from the rest of the essay in it's own blurb-style area and in a traditional shade of smooth, blurb-style blue.  It looks a lot like a magazine article, actually.

But the question is, would an adcomm go into a berserker rage over this break from the norm?!

I don't think this is the genre to play with page formatting.  I agree that it would seem like a gimmick, and AdComms would be disappointed you had to resort to the way your paragraphing looks on the page to be creative.  But, I'm not on an AdComm  ;D

Why don't you write a concrete poem in the shape of their school's mascot!
