Prompt #4

Feature articles are always fascinating to me. They put other peoples lives and experiences in a way that you begin to feel like you are going through the issue with these people.

The story about Jose Garcia being ripped away from his family was most likely the most difficult story to report and write about. Immigration policy is such a highly debated subject right now, and having to interview families that have been ripped apart has to be emotionally exhausting.

The story about Nick Foles was probably took the least effort to report on. Most of the information in the article could be found with a simple Google search, but it was still interesting to hear about Foles’ athletic history outside of football.

Before reading each article, I was least interested in the article about Camila Cabello. The writer effectively got me interested in the story by writing about Cabello’s new album, “Camila,” which I thought was very well done.

One thing that I thought was great in each feature article, was how the writers all went deep into what makes up the person that each article is written about. I felt like I knew each person that the articles were written about. By making that personal connection, a reader can still be very interested in the story, even if they aren’t incredibly into the topic.

  1. “By making that personal connection, a reader can still be very interested in the story, even if they aren’t incredibly into the topic.” Drop the mic, Nate. This is the whole point of this exercise 🙂
