News is information about current events that is obtained and conveyed to the public in a timely manner. It covers a wide range of topics including war, politics, government, education, health, the environment, business and fashion as well as events that affect or interest people in general.
The first step in writing a news article is to research the topic thoroughly. This can include asking questions like: Who are you writing for, where is the audience located (local or national) what do they want to know about this topic and how much background knowledge will they have on this subject? This will help you decide how much detail to include in the article and what the main points should be.
Begin your news article with a paragraph or two that introduces the story and grabs the reader’s attention. This is known as your lede in journalism jargon. The next paragraph or two should answer any questions your audience might have about the topic – for example, if you use any industry jargon, be sure to spell it out the first time it is used and explain what it means.
The main part of your news article should focus on the event or story itself. This should include all of the relevant facts, who was involved, where it happened and why it is newsworthy. It is important to also give any additional information that may be useful such as contact details, quotes from sources or other pertinent information.
