How to Write Newsworthy Articles

News

News is information that is important or interesting. It may be about the world, the country or a local community. It should be written briefly so that people will read it, clearly so that they understand it, picturesquely so that they remember it and, above all, accurately so that they can be guided by it.

Before you write a news article you should research your topic thoroughly. This will give you a better understanding of what the article is about and will help you to write it better. Always have another person read your work before you submit it. They can help to find spelling and grammatical errors, make sentences more concise and remove unnecessary information.

Knowing your audience is also important. This will determine the voice and tone of your article as well as what type of information you should include in it. Asking yourself the ā€œ5 Wā€™sā€ (who, where, what, when and why) will help you to decide how to structure your article.

People are interested in events that affect them personally or professionally. This could be a new law that impacts them or an event in their community that they are concerned about. They are also interested in things that are unusual or surprising. For example, scientists report that an insect has been found living on a plant it did not previously inhabit. This is a significant finding, but it would be unlikely to interest anyone other than specialists or enthusiasts in a general news broadcast or paper.
