What is a feature article in a magazine?
A feature article is a long-form piece of writing that explores a particular topic in depth. It is found in magazines and newspapers and often highlights a person, event, or trend that interests the publication’s readers. A good feature article will engage the reader from the beginning, provide informative and exciting content, and give the reader a greater understanding of the topic. To write a successful feature article, conducting thorough research, interviewing sources, and crafting a compelling narrative that keeps the reader engaged throughout the piece is essential.
A great example – Lee’s Journey to Everest.
Lee engages with the reader through photographic evidence, her struggles and achievements—the difficulty of achieving her goal versus juggling family and business.
