Writing Draft for The Breaking News Story (Editorial decisions and Planning)

When planning the draft, it was important to pull out the key facts to the story out of the press release I recently received. I also wanted to add the additional facts about what the couple’s pleas were. This is additional information that I haven’t see in any of the other pieces to do with this subject.

  • In the Intro – I want to add – Who, What and Where
  • Main Body – State more about the case – who was charged, how long they got, how many people they trafficked, how they managed to get those involved to do what they wanted, what they plead. victim and experts quote to add a human and emotion depth.
  • Conclusion – Helplines/ website/ charities
