1. Use images
By using images you can keep your formatting in place and show your work the way you intended it to be. Next time you complete a piece of work, upload an image of it completed so that people can see it properly. Which brings us to our next point...
2. Display the work in its final form
If you wrote something, you designed it to be formatted for a particular reason: a blog post, a landing page or a letter. Show these examples. They will show your work in a better fashion and make you look more professional.
3. Use a template to format your writing
A real writer knows that spacing and placement can change how something is read, and your portfolio is no different. By using a template to post your work you can increase your credibility. Look to Medium or other writing sites for examples
4. Triple check for spelling and grammar and formatting
This sounds crazy, but even the best and busiest writers have been known to make mistakes. If someone is looking to hire a writer, one mistake anywhere on your profile will turn them off completely.
