Written work published in print or internet medium for the purpose of propagating news, academic analysis, research or debate is called ‘an article.’ Article writing gives you a chance to share compelling and important information with readers. An article is like a direct conversation with the reader.
The basic components of an article include a catchy headline followed by an introduction which immediately grabs the attention of the readers. Then we have the body of the article which throws light on the topic introduced in the opening paragraph, give critical insights about it and head towards a logical conclusion which must include a brief summary of the article.
Article writing is an art. In order to write an effective article the writer must be creative in his approach and must possess an in-depth knowledge of the subject of the article. An article is usually written in a semi-informal and conversational style. Good writing skills and fact-finding ability are the keys to write an effective article. Always remember that an article is written in an objective manner so that it can explain all sides of an issue.
