What is Inverted Pyramid Writing?
A form of writing where conclusions are presented at the beginning or top of a pyramid, and details and fine points are at the bottom. Inverted Pyramid Writing enables the reader to stop at any moment without missing the main points of the document.
In journalism, the inverted pyramid refers to a story structure where the most important information is presented first. What, who, when, where, and why appear at the beginning of the story, followed by supporting details and background information. This allows the audience to quickly read through the most important details so that they can decide whether to continue reading the story or stop.
