Your introduction should set the scene and catch your reader’s attention. Here is your chance to set the tone of your feature article, or bait the hook for your readers. Consider the ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘where’, ‘why’ and ‘how’ of your article, and providing your readers with the angle your feature article is going to take. Remember, your introduction should give your readers a reason to keep on reading.

If the introduction is the sourdough bread, the body is the delicious filling to your feature article sandwich. You’ve set the scene in your introduction, so the body is your chance to take your reader on a journey. Through the body be creative with your language. Although you may have a clear imagine in your mind for the topic of your article, you need to use creative and descriptive language to share this image with your reader. Remember to stick to your angle and don’t be afraid to add your own opinion and flair through this part. And finally, try to make sure you have a point of interest in each paragraph of your article to keep your reader engaged.

This is often a neglected part of a feature article, but the conclusion ties the whole article together. It summarises your thoughts and angle, and gives you a place to offer a course of action for your readers (if a course of action is appropriate for your article). Your conclusion deserves just as much attention as your introduction and body, so take the time here to tidy up any loose ends through your feature article.

This is a basic layout of a feature article. Of course, the great part of knowing the rules is now knowing how to break them. Once you get comfortable with writing a solid feature article you can try experimenting with your writing style, structure and narrative. Also, back your article up with great photography. The Morris Journalism Academy’s online freelance journalism course doesn’t just how you how to write a feature article, but also offers great tips and tricks on capturing breathtaking photography that will set your article apart from the pile sitting on the editor’s desk.
