Feature Writing: Why Feature Writers Become Feature Writers

It is a very natural progression to start your career as a journalist writing for the newsdesk and then move onto the more ‘liberated’ features desk. A lot of people realise that they love writing and want to be able to do more descriptive and creative pieces. However, not all feature writers were news journalists first. There’s been feature writers born from photographers who started writing with captions for their photos.

This chapter of the Feature Writing book (see below for details) describes many people who have been inspired to write features enjoying the experience of researching and crafting a well-written colourful story that can span up to 2,000 words.

This brings me to the end of my chapter summaries; to see my past few posts click here to return to the blog’s home page.
