A thriving market exists for features, including content for websites and blogs. This class begins by defining the important distinction between the feature article and "hard news", and explores how to find viable ideas for articles. We will then cover several aspects of feature-writing, focusing on the vital lead paragraph (hooks, angles, and grabbing  the reader's attention), structure, and narrative techniques that can enrich the article. Finally we examine a range of research resources and ways to market the feature.
