The inverted pyramid: most important news/information at the top and then flow down. Very useful for hard news: identify and prioritize the 5 W’s and H.
But there are other ways to organize. They include: the hourglass, blocks/focus, and narrative. All of these styles have news elements, a strong nut graf (think of it like a thesis statement or even just the graf that explains what the story is really about and why people should be keep reading) and solid interviewing/reporting.
We will look at some examples, but this link has visual representations of these and other styles that might help some better understand the structures.
