Introduction to Feature Stories [Madeline Ostrander]

Beginning/Intermediate. The feature is a flexible narrative form that allows writers to combine a literary voice with the timeliness of newswriting—and get their work into top-tier, well-compensated publications. This generative class teaches the art and pragmatism of feature-writing. Through exercises, readings, and discussion, you’ll develop enticing story ideas and learn to weave together the characters, scenes, and “big idea” exposition that are characteristic of features. You’ll come away with one or more draft story pitches and the tools to craft many successful features.
