Article Writing

Feature articles are the human side of journalism—pieces that go beyond the facts, exploring the world in a personal and compelling way. Such articles can examine virtually any topic, from the latest news to the newest trends to profiles of interesting people. And they can even grow into narrative nonfiction books.
 
To succeed at features, you need a reporter’s eye for detail, a storyteller’s flair, and the curiosity of a cat. Here you’ll learn about the various types of features, as well as the techniques for writing them and how to market your work.
 
Whether you seek to write stories drawn from serious news or the lighter side of life, we’ll show you how to devise articles that grab a reader’s attention.
 
Notes:
Feature articles are fact-based journalistic pieces. Reporting—research and interviewing—is essential. If you wish to write nonfiction that is purely literary or opinion-based, look at Memoir Writing, Essay & Opinion Writing, or Personal Essay Writing
