Features are extended news stories and we strive for similar things - but extended length means more depth. As with news stories, a good feature is based on facts.
It needs a strong angle that is sustained, it needs people, solid research, the writing must be lively and energetic, the topic must have appeal and be significant, with universal appeal.
Set text The recommended text we'll be using is the second edition of feature writing telling the story by Stephen Tanner, Molly Kasinger and Nick Richardson. They have identified the fundamentals underpinning all forms of feature writing as: It also helps if you are a nosey person.
If you are curious about everything you will find it easy to come up with ideas for features and want to write about them. Always be asking why? Be curious about people, everyone has a story to tell.
Start using your eyes and ears to find stories. And read, read, read - all good writers must be readers. Feature articles are everywhere - in newspapers The Good Weekend and The Australian Magazine ; in magazines; o n l i n e.

Your writing will be scrutinised and pulled apart, so if you are sensitive to criticism, you will need to toughen up - all good writing is rewriting and all writers need feedback. In workshops be willing to share- your ideas, your triumphs and your setbacks, journalism is a collaborative medium.
At the end of the course you'll have a portfolio of polished articles including a film review, a profile and a feature, all published online.
Creativity in features According to our set text, "Feature writing is for people who have a creative streak but nonetheless recognise that journalism is still about conveying the truth".
It's important to remember that this is a journalism course, not a Creative Writing course. You will profile real people and write features about real events or situations.
There is a creative element to writing features. It's a form of extended storytelling and so literary devices such as character, dialogue and description are often deployed. There is a genre of journalism called creative non-fiction or narrative journalism, which will come up in discussion, but it's an extended form and one best deployed when you've mastered the basic skills of journalism and had some life experience.
It's perfectly valid- and difficult enough- to write straight-forward, news-based features laying out the facts and various poi nts of view to a story or an issue, with no need for colour. Brave new media world Now, I said earlier, it's best to progress to feature writing from a news background, but we all know journalism is in a state of massive change and this course will be preparing you for the work environment you will move into, the digital journalism age that we have had to adapt to and is why the course changes in small ways each year.

Further job losses have since been announced. In March the Sydney Morning Herald went from the broadsheet format it had been printed in sinceto what it calls the compact format, saying the move was in response to reader demand and nothing to do with cost cutting.
The Saturday edition remained a broadsheet for a year then init too became compact. Fairfax media says it remains committed to quality journalism and the o n l y thing changing is the size but there has been speculation recently that more cuts are to come.
