Feature Writing

Lisa Byerley Gary

The idea of being able to tell a story — especially someone else’s story — captures the imagination of many students and would-be journalists.

And that’s what feature writing is — telling someone else’s story.

But feature writing also means reporting and writing like a journalist. Feature writers must gather information and sift through that information, finding just the right set of facts and words to convey their stories accurately and clearly.

Feature Writing presents the basic concepts and techniques of feature writing for students who want to explore this vital part of journalism. It is brief and designed to be highly accessible to the beginning student.

The book also contains a bonus chapter on the First Amendment.

The author is Lisa Byerley Gary, a professional writer, former newspaper editor, and lecturer in the School of Journalism and Electronic Media at the University of Tennessee.
