How to write a newspaper headline

A newspaper headlines first job is to catch and hold the attention of readers. It then has to persuade the reader to continue on reading the article. They are usually short about five or six words because space in a newspaper is limited.

Good newspaper headlines tell you what is happening, are usually provocative,  and will compel you to read the rest of the story.
