A newspaper is a periodical publication which contains current events in a local, national or international context. It can be published daily, weekly or monthly, with articles written by journalists who may have subject expertise. It is intended for the general public and can be read by people with little or no previous subject knowledge. It often includes editorials, news photographs and op-ed opinions. It is often printed on large sheets of paper which are folded, although different newspapers might use a variety of formats and sizes.
A successful news article must be concise and well written in a formal tone, and should contain only the most important information. It should also be presented in a clear manner to avoid confusing the reader. The structure of a newspaper article follows an Inverted Pyramid format, with the most important information (who, what, when, where and why) placed at the top or beginning of the article, while less important information is added on after that.
