How to Write Newsworthy Articles

News is information about current events. It has been spread through word of mouth, printed media like newspapers and books, and now via the internet. It can be both factual and opinionated. People are interested in the news for a variety of reasons. It might be about war, politics, government, education, health, weather, fashion, business or entertainment. The Internet has made it possible for the news to travel faster and to a wider audience. But it also means that misinformation can be spread just as quickly. It is important to be skeptical of sensational headlines and to read more than one source.

Most news is about people. Prominent men and women make news because of their achievements, failures, wealth or looks. They are of interest to their fans, who want to know what they think and how they act. People are concerned about their own health so stories about traditional remedies, medical research, hospitals and clinics are popular. People want enough to eat so food prices, droughts and crop diseases are of interest. Entertainment is of interest too – music, drama, theatre and cinema; new films and celebrity gossip.

When writing a news article you should aim to keep it short. Long tangents or winding sentences are not likely to engage your readers and they may stop reading the story altogether. It is also a good idea to show your news articles to others before submitting them for publication, so that they can give you feedback on the clarity of your writing.
