Words' Worth, a concise yet complete guide to writing feature articles, is as useful to the struggling beginner as it is to the accomplished professional. Using many fresh, lively examples from the works of some of the best writers of the twentieth century, Brooks analyzes the essential com- ponents of the feature story--the lead, verbs, transitions, and quotes--and con- siders how they can be combined for maximum effect. She shows writers how to sharpen their eye for stories--and how to sharpen their style as well. She gives them practical advice on the business of selling the articles they've written. Individuals who follow Brooks' inspired advice and work through the useful end-of-chapter exercises and drills she provides will become feature writers whose works are widely read.
