Some advice – HOW TO WRITE A PIECE OF NEWS:

  1. Headline: simple but powerful language.
  2. Straplines: brief summary of the news.
  3. First paragraph: 6 Ws, showing the most important facts.
  4. Second paragraph: background (why has the event happened? How did it start?)
  5. Third paragraph: development of the event.
  6. Fourth paragraph: reactions from the main character, witnesses or other people. Use quotations.
