Topical Reporting or Issue Stories

My definition:

A reporting project on a topic or issue of public concern. Not necessarily driven by the regular news cycle, although it can have a news peg in current events. Uses the traditional techniques of feature writing — i.e, character development, setting scenes, structured with a narrative arc — to inform and engage the audience. Online publications often make use of multimedia to help present a vivid and compelling story.
