How to Write an Entertaiment Article


When writing an entertainment article, try to stay away from making accusations or implications that are not well founded. This can lead to libel, which is a serious offense and could land you in legal trouble. If possible, use information that is available from authorized biographies or a celebrity’s own talk show appearances. Also, keep in mind that many people who are the subject of an entertainment article are involved in humanitarian causes. Using the topic of their charity work as the focus of an entertainment article can be a good way to get more attention for your article.

Entertainment can take any form and be adapted to any scale – from an individual choosing private entertainment from a massive array of pre-recorded products, through banquets for two, performances for thousands and even global television broadcasts. In addition, entertainment can have a serious purpose – as in ceremonies and celebrations, religious festivals and satire. Or it can be an opportunity for learning and intellectual growth, as in the famous story of Scheherazade (a professional Persian storytelling tradition) that has inspired countless retellings, including music by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel, and Szymanowski; films made by directors like Pasolini and Spielberg; and innovative video games.
