Real Feature Writing emphasizes story shape and structure by illustrating several distinct types of feature and non-fiction stories, all drawn from the real world. Author Abraham Aamidor presents a collection of distinct non-deadline story types (profile, trend, focus, advocacy, and more), providing an introduction to each story type, a full-text example, a critical analysis of the example, and clear directions for producing similar stories. In this second edition, Aamidor and his guest contributors (all with real-world journalistic experience) demonstrate in clear, honest language how to write features.
 
New for this edition are:
*updated examples of feature writing, integrated throughout the text;*a chapter on ethical journalism, which takes a critical look at propaganda;*a chapter on international perspectives, including coverage of issues in the Middle East;*chapters on research, freelancing, content editing, copyediting, and literary journalism.
This text is appropriate for upper-level journalism students, and will be a valuable resource for freelance writers and young working journalists needing guidance on writing features.

Review:

Review of the first edition:
It is written for a college audience, in fresh language and with humor.... One thing I especially like about the book is that it is easy to augment with classroom reading. Each chapter contains examples, whether of stories or of excerpts from stories. This is great for the student to see....my students always ask for an 'instruction manual' for feature writing, and this book offers that, and more.

Journalism & Mass Communication Educator
