News is anything that affects a large number of people and/or is a significant event in the history of an area.
Generally speaking, the more time something has been around the more likely it is to be considered news. For instance, a story about an insect that threatens crops will be a news item because it affects the livelihood of many people.
Timeliness is also a factor in determining whether an event is considered news. When people read the newspaper, watch TV or listen to the radio they want to hear about current events and news that is happening now.
Drama is another factor that makes an event a news story. A story about a robbery at a convenience store will have an element of drama because it highlights who was good and who was bad in the situation.
This type of news article is best written as an e-newsletter that can be emailed to people on the Internet, not as a printed version in a newspaper. Because the e-newsletter can be viewed on a computer screen, it is important to make sure that all of your information is accurate before sending it out.
