  • We value your contribution to Fagnum. But sometimes the articles received are so much error-prone that it results in delayed publishing because Fagnum has a very small or no team.

  • We have been noticing since past few months that many articles are written in passive voice. We request you to please write your article in the active voice. Passive voice sentences often use more words and sound vague. Active voice sentences make the read very smooth.

    I will clean the house every Saturday. (active)

    The last cookie was eaten by whom? (passive)
    Who ate the last cookie? (active)
