SPOT FEATURE

Your assignment is to attend Media Day and write a spot feature which will be due by 10 a.m. the following morning. For an idea of how to write a spot news feature, check out some of the hyperlinks below. You'll use a delayed, anecdotal lead, not a hard news lead, and you'll incorporate the writing techniques we've been discussing this semester.

Feature leads vs. hard news leads
