The Feature Story

My English 105WS students should be thinking about the feature story you will write in the next week.  You are supposed to come to class on Wednesday with two good feature-story ideas you can pitch to your editorial group.

The feature story is one that employs more descriptive language, background, and “shelf-life” than a hard news story.

The University of North Carolina at Pembroke has an excellent post about  what feature stories are, some different types of feature stories, and how to write a feature story step-by-step.  You will find that post here.

To fulfill this assignment, you will write a feature story of approximately 750 words (approximately 2.5 pages).  You may include photos or illustrations if you like.
