Learn to write a Feature Story for magazines and newspapers.  Rebecca Mahoney, who has published numerous feature articles in the Boston Globe, the L.A. Times, the Orlando Sentinel, and many other newspapers, as well as Associated Press online, will teach a workshop, via Skype, on how to find, organize, and write a feature story. To see some of Rebecca’s work, go to

Feature stories are everywhere because they are very popular with readers. The news feature, the profile, the review, the travel story, the evergreen are all types of features.  Understanding how to put together these stories in the most professional and creative way gives writers another path to publication beyond the magazines that only publish fiction or creative nonfiction of a certain type.

The workshop will end at 5 pm and attendees who wish to may stay for Writers’ Night Out, our weekly soup supper and writing fellowship.
