How to Write Good News in English
News is what happens in the world that is significant enough to be reported. Events that make the news are often dramatic and have clearly identifiable good and bad characters and situations. News stories also usually have a timeliness that is important to the people who read, watch or listen to them.
Write a snappy headline that clearly informs readers of the topic while seizing their interest. Then use 25 words or less to introduce the story and include any important facts that readers need to know right away (who, what, where, when, why, how).
Start with the most compelling information first. In journalism jargon, this is called a lede. Then follow up with the other important information in descending order of importance. Remember that readers of online news tend to have short attention spans, so keep your news articles concise by avoiding long tangents and winding sentences.
Read a variety of news sources to see how the same story can be presented differently. This will give you a fuller picture of how the media shapes your perspective on the world. Also, reading from a wide range of sources will help you to develop your vocabulary and see how different words can mean the same thing. If you are learning English, try to choose sources that are easy for you to understand. This may limit your exposure to new vocabulary, but it will help you to build up a base of functional language.
