How to Write Good News

News is information about events that have happened or may happen. It is often about people but can also be about places, animals or things. It is important to keep up with the news as it can help us make informed decisions and stay aware of what is going on in the world around us. However, it is important to be critical of the news we read and to check that the information is accurate.

When writing a news article it is important to include the 5 Ws (who, what, where, when and why). It is also helpful to add supporting evidence in the form of quotes or opinions from industry experts. This will give your story credibility and make it more interesting for readers.

It is important to remember that news articles are often written for a broad audience and that what is interesting in one society may not be so in another. For example, a new insect discovery may be of interest to scientists but it would probably not be big news in a general newspaper or on the television news bulletins.

The most interesting news stories usually contain human interest. This is because people are interested in other people and how their actions affect them. It is also important to write a snappy headline that clearly informs the reader of what the news story is about. Finally, it is important to write above the fold (the term used for newspapers that have a crease in them where they get folded). This means putting the most important information at the top of the news story so it can be seen easily on smaller devices.
