Chapter Seven Thoughts…

News Features

What I learned:

  • Feature stories “provide more information to the consumer, give background and context about organizations, provide behind-the-scenes perspective, give a human dimension to situations and events and generate publicity for standard products and services.”
  • How to Write a Personality Profile (on page 166 – 5th edition)

What surprised me:

  • I had not heard this term before…. Apparently a “backgrounder” focuses on a problem and how it was solved- by an organization or a product.
  • How much impact your lead has on your story!

What I want to know more about:

  • There are some tips on page 172, in the 5th edition that gives tips on how to write a good feature story, and I would like to know more of them!
