What is a Feature Article:
A feature article is a news story that covers a topic deeply. Do not confuse Feature Articles with daily news reporting. Features often have a “human interest” angle. You want to present the big picture stories behind the news.
When choosing a Feature topic know what is going on with current trends; fashions; recent news stories; as well as prevalent issues and topics that matter to you.

Author a Hooker opening sentence that will hold the reader’s attention, making them want to complete first paragraph. Include startling fact, challenging question, dramatic description, or interesting story telling directly related to the Hook or Lead.

Write a strong conclusion summary of your piece as an article closing to your arguments or information. You do not have time or space to provide the reader with definitive topic. Leave your reader hungry for more arguments or information on your main topic. You are not writing a definitive piece on the topic, so remember to leave the reader hungry for more.
Provide plenty of interesting information points that will keep your audience thinking about this topic. If there are facts you must leave out it is cool. Additional facts may-will lead to additional articles. Maybe end with a part two, three., if you so desire.
