How to Write Good News


News is information about what is happening in areas of culture that would be of interest to a readership. It needs to be presented briefly so that it can be read quickly, clearly so that it can be understood, picturesquely so that it will be remembered, and above all accurately so that people can be guided by it.

The nature of what makes news varies in different societies. In modern times, much news is about people – their achievements, failures and problems. But it is also possible to get news about non-human things, such as weather conditions, natural disasters or the behaviour of animals and plants.

Putting together a good news article requires the skill of a journalist to be able to identify what is important to a particular audience and present it in an interesting way. It also requires the ability to find the facts and not be swayed by personal opinions or bias. News articles need to be based on sound research and have a logical structure. It is often helpful for a writer to write in a formal tone.

The ability to evoke emotions in the audience is also an important feature of a good news article. This is achieved through a headline that grabs attention, and the way the story develops in the following paragraphs. The conclusion should restate the dominant point of the story, place it in a larger context and if necessary provide some forecasts about future developments or potential implications.
