How to Write an Effective Editorial

How to Write News Articles, as suggested by the Public Broadcasting Network

Key Components

• Attention getting headline.
• A strong lead containing 5 W’s and H (who, what, when, where, why, and how).
• Use of quotes (we like to hear what others have to say about the topic of the story).
• Real facts (the truth and accuracy matter).
• A strong summary.
• Arrangement of the story (presenting information from most to least important).

What Makes a Story Newsworthy?

Timing – if it happened today, it’s news, if it happened last week, it’s not; with 24-hour news access, “breaking” news is important
Significance – how many people are affected
Proximity – the closer a story hits to home, the more newsworthy it is
Prominence – when famous people are affected, the story matters (i.e. car accident involving your family vs. a car accident involving the President)
Human Interest – because these stories are based on emotional appeal, they are meant to be amusing or to generate empathy or other emotions. They often appear in special sections of the newspaper or at the end of the newscast as a “feel good” story or to draw attention to something particularly amusing, quirky, or offbeat.

To be considered, please submit a short article between 200-300 words to
