·         Adding energy and interest to tired topics
·         Getting from first ideas to finish article
·         The rules of organization
·         How—and whom—to quote and paraphrase
·         Wordcraft, leads, and narrative flow
·         Self-editing and notes on style
 
... plus many sample feature articles.
