The key function to Feature Writing is to humanise, educate, illuminate and entertain. Features explain, expand and analyse the topic, person or trend. A hook forms an important base for the story. You should detail your observations, throw in direct quotations and emotional appeal. A lead block of text, usually one or two paragraphs begins a feature. Be sure to connect the introduction, body and conclusion of the story.

You want to engage the reader, providing strong mental imagery. Your voice, as the writer, should be entrenched in the story. The end should wrap-up the story with an interesting climax.

Features writers use facts and creativity in a fluid manner to entertain the reader.
