Chapter 7

October 12, 2010 paigewalters

Feature stories can provide additional background information, generate human interest, and create understanding in a more imaginative way.

A proposal/outline for a magazine is often required by some magazine editors. The following are points that should be included in a proposal:

-Tentative title of the article

-Subject and theme

-Significance. Why is the topic important? Why should readers know about it?

-Major points.

-Description of photos and graphics available.

Types of features are case studies, application stories, research study, backgrounder, personality profile, and historical pieces.

The major parts of a feature piece is the headline, the lead, the body, the summary, and photos/graphics.

Some common placements for feature stories can be in newspapers, general magazines, specialty/trade magazines, or internal publications.

 

I got my information on Chapter 6 from: Public Relations Writing and Media Ethics
