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.
