Tips in Editorial Writing

25 Comments 🕔11.Aug 2009


1. Use the “we” approach or the 3rd person, since an editorial represents a group opinion.

2. Build the opinion from a newspeg. An editorial is not just a mere opinion but it is pegged on a news event, idea, or a news story.

3. For controversial issues, present both sides; take up the advantages and advantages. Ask the readers to decide or come up with their opinion or concept.

4. If you need to take sides, be on the right track; support and sustain good deeds; commend exemplary actions or projects.

5. If you may attack, attack the situation, the problem or the issue, not the person.

6. While we can educate, inform, explain, and influence readers through the editorial, we have to avoid preachiness.

7. We can use beautiful language as we may depending upon the purpose to be achieved in writing the editorial.

8. The editorial title like the lead or the first sentence or paragraph should be catchy and one that attracts or compels readers to read the story or material.

9. The conclusion should flow naturally from the lead to the details in the development of the body of the story.

10. Like the feature story, the editorial should have a catchy title, attractive lead, organized body and a conclusion that would help shape readers’ opinion over issues and concerns presented.
