Book Summary:

Good writing is at the heart of journalism. Journalists write for a living. They use words precisely and efficiently. They present accurate, verified information in a way that a mass audience will understand it by reading or hearing it only once. Such writing takes skill, discipline and practice. Writing Like a Journalist will give the reader some of the basic concepts of how journalists achieve good writing -- writing that an audience can understand and will pay for. Chapters topics in this volume include: - The discipline of good writing - Mastering the language - Tools of writing: Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling - Why journalistic writing is different - The inverted pyramid structure - Headlines - Writing for audio and visual journalism The book also contains a bonus chapter on the First Amendment with sections on each of the five freedoms protected by the amendment and a section on the history and development of the amendment. The many multimedia and interactive elements in this book include writing tips by Roy Peter Clark, video comments by First Amendment historian Dwight Teeter, and review quizzes in many of the chapters.

Book Summary:

Want to write novels that feel real enough to the reader to have been ripped from the headlines, whatever your genre? Think like a journalist. Journalists consult sources and reference materials to find realistic detail for their stories. But if you're a novelist - you have to build the reference source for your story world from scratch. In this textbook/workbook you will learn how to apply the 5-Ws and H to the building blocks of the novel, in order to start building a Story Bible. (Other workbooks in this series cover each 5-Ws question in depth, adding to the overview information found here). This workbook also deals with how to get organized and set parameters for your work, and how to apply lessons from the journalism classroom to novel writing. It also discusses how to research effectively, so that you can apply real-world history, science and location information to your fiction. There is instructional material that focuses on understanding different aspects of what you are promising to deliver in your novel. All of this works in tandem with the worksheets. -- Hemmingway worked as a newspaper journalist before he became a fiction writer. E.B. White did a stint at the New Yorker. L.M. Montgomery was a reporter in Halifax before tackling Anne of Green Gables. Margaret Mitchell got her start as a reporter for the Atlanta Journal Sunday Magazine. What these writers have in common: an excellent sense of character, and the ability to write clean prose that clearly puts forwards the characters' goals and motivations. This ability may well come from having mastered the journalistic art, which emphasizes creating a sound story that balances logic, research and emotional authenticity. Even if you're working in a purely creative world, you can still use those principles, and learn to organize and research like a journalist, and to ask the questions a journalist asks either before or after you write your story.

Book Summary:

Want to write novels that feel real enough to the reader to have been ripped from the headlines, whatever your genre? Think like a journalist. Just like a journalist, as a fiction writer, you will need to define WHAT your story is about. For the novelist WHAT relates to premise. In this textbook/workbook you will look at what you plan to write about from different angles and will use the information you uncover to create a story premise that has an active protagonist in an intriguing story, fighting for high stakes. (These can include both external-world stakes and emotional stakes). This workbook also deals with how to generate ideas. There is instructional material that focuses on understanding how to build conflict into your story, understand clear goals and motivations for character action, and making sure that your stakes are high enough. All of this works in tandem with the worksheets. -- Hemmingway worked as a newspaper journalist before he became a fiction writer. E.B. White did a stint at the New Yorker. L.M. Montgomery was a reporter in Halifax before tackling Anne of Green Gables. Margaret Mitchell got her start as a reporter for the Atlanta Journal Sunday Magazine.

Book Summary:

Affordable, No-Nonsense Textbook for College Newswriting Courses Too long, too vapid and too expensive. Like many journalism instructors, R. Thomas Berner was familiar with these complaints, which college students often made about the textbooks assigned in their reporting, writing and copy editing classes. So Berner, a professor emeritus at Pennsylvania State University, decided to write Fundamentals of Journalism: Reporting, Writing and Editing, a student-friendly book with an affordable list price of only $29.95. This 356-page book distills much of the content in other books Berner wrote during his 28 years at Penn State, which included The Process of Writing News, Writing Literary Features, The Literature of Journalism, The Process of Editing, and Language Skills for Journalists.

Book Summary:

Welcome to the world of journalism! There are not many books that can serve as useful guides to the students of journalism and more so for students of print journalism. In fact, as one involved in teaching of journalism alongside working as a full-time journalist, we felt that teaching at journalism schools was completely bereft of practise and there was more emphasis on theoretical part. It is this lacuna that two of us with experience of working with national dailies have tried to fill. This book is a complete book of print journalism as authors have devoted special chapters on print journalism, what news is, news reporting, feature and middle writing, writing of headlines and intros, inverted-pyramid style of writing, developmental journalism, investigative journalism, business journalism, glossary of newspaper terms, press laws and self-regulation, structure and departments of a newspaper, and yoga and spirituality for more positivity in mass media. Written in an easy-to-understand manner, this book can do wonders for you and would be your companion for years to come. All the best! —Charanjit Ahuja and Bharat Hiteshi
