If you've been wondering the average number of words per page, you've gotta read this!

Greetings,

This morning, Laurynda forwarded me an excellent resource that was submitted to her from Martyn Lloyd regarding page lengths and respective word counts as published by Gloria T. Delamar of the Philadelphia Writer's Conference Inc.

For instance, you'll find helpful nuggets like this:

Bear in mind that to say you have a manuscript of fifty pages, doesn't adequately convey its length. It depends on how many characters-per-inch (cpi) it was printed at.

If printed at 10 cpi, there will be about 250 words per page, making the manuscript about 12,500 words; if printed at 12 cpi, there will be about 300 words per page, making the manuscript 15,000 words. A heftier manuscript of 250 pages can mean the difference between 62,500 and 75,000 words.

If you'd like more information about the average word counts for a wide array of publications, check out this excellent resource here at the Philadelphia Writer's Conference website.

Thank you again to Martyn for sharing this resource.

Cheers!

Stephanie
