The Art of Feature Writing

From Newspaper Features and Magazine Articles to Commentary

Earl R. Hutchison

From basic newspaper features to in-depth magazine articles and incisive commentary, The Art of Feature Writing introduces students to the myriad tasks of a journalist--including researching, interviewing, organizing, writing and marketing. Replete with accessible, dynamic examples drawn from a variety of diverse sources, this book takes a step-by-step approach to give students the skills, tools and confidence they need to produce their own distinctive material.

With the encouraging voice of an experienced teacher, Hutchison imparts sensible advice on both the craft of writing and the more practical concerns of a freelancer. The book is enhanced by rich pedagogical features including key points, chapter summaries and numerous exercises. From writing a lead that sings to the income tax implications of a freelance career, The Art of Feature Writing helps students generate compelling copy as they develop a more sophisticated understanding of the career of a writer.
