Constructive feedback exerciseDO
Use the 5ws (who, where, what, why, when) in opening of story,ideally first one or two paragraphs
Ensure intros are max 30 words broadsheet, 20 words tabloid
Ensure the story centres on the most up-to-date developmentse.g. Boyzone singer Stephen Gately has been found dead...Apost-mortem is to be held... Boyzone singer Stephen Gately diedof natural causes
Use the present tense used where possible. Avoid ‘was’ in theintro. Instead use ‘is’ ‘has been’ or ‘will be.’
Explore ‘how’ and ‘why’ in the
of the story (afterthe 5ws)
Use ‘active’ language. Focus on the person/thing at the centre of the action, rather than the action itself , especially in theintro...this is SO important for getting intros right.
