What’s This Obsession With Adding Full Stops To Subheadings?

Editors — please stop adding full stops to my subheadings!

© Susie Kearley

Let’s start an argument! I’ve worked in the publishing industry for a decade and until I started writing on Medium, I’d never noticed editors adding full stops (periods) to headings or subheadings.




The Shortform is dedicated to the quick read. If you are looking for some tiny nuggets of knowledge or some easy entertainment, you came to the right place. Specially designed for consuming content when you are short on time or energy.
