How to Write Newsworthy Articles


News is information about events, issues or concerns that would be of interest to a newspaper audience. It should be presented briefly so that readers will read it, clearly so they will understand it and picturesquely so that it will be remembered. It should also be accurate and should not contain personal bias.

To write a good News article it is necessary to research the topic extensively. It is important to know the audience that you are writing for and that will dictate what information is relevant to them. When you have a good idea of the audience that you are writing for you can then start to build your article. Keeping the inverted pyramid structure in mind, it is essential that you put the most important information first. This way even if a reader only reads the headline and a few of the paragraphs they will have enough information to make them want to continue reading.

The most exciting and interesting news stories are those that are unusual, interesting or significant about people. If a man wakes up, eats breakfast and takes the bus to work it is not news; but if he walks into a burning building to rescue a cat that he has raised from birth it will be a piece of news which will be talked about for a long time. The same is true of an assassination, a meteor landing on earth or a coup in a small country.
