How to Write Newsworthy Articles


News is information about current events that is communicated in some way, whether through word of mouth, written reports or through electronic communication. It may be intended to educate, inspire or entertain. News is considered to be a powerful tool for democracy and it can be used to shape public opinion, but only if it is presented honestly.

A good title is important for a news article, and it should be concise and clear. This will help to attract readers and keep them interested in the article. The headline should be followed by a lead, which is the first paragraph of the news story and provides a preview of what the entire article will be about. The lead should provide all of the important facts of the story and it should include your byline if you are the writer of the article. It is also a good idea to have another member of the publication staff read the article, because they will be able to catch any spelling or grammar mistakes that you may have overlooked.

In order to be newsworthy, an event must be new and significant. Even if something happened previously, it can still be newsworthy if it is reported for the first time. For example, an insect that was found living on a plant that it did not previously inhabit is new and unusual. However, if that insect was one that was destroying crops then it would be of interest to many people and it could possibly be included in a news broadcast or newspaper article.
