Writing the News

A Guide for Print Journalists

Third edition

By Walter Fox

The third edition of Writing the News continues the tradition of its predecessors by providing beginning journalists with a clear and concise introduction to the craft of newswriting. Along with updating and adding to the number of examples from the contemporary press, the new edition includes a section on the increasingly popular narrative form of the feature and an expanded chapter on news style. Covering all of the essential journalistic skills – from lead writing and story development to the handling of quotes and feature techniques – the book offers practical instruction to anyone involved in print journalism or interested in the rhetoric of news. (168 pp., 6 x 9, paperback, ISBN 0-8138-2248-3, $43.95).

"Writing the News is very highly recommended for students of print and media journalism, as well as article and reportage writing for magazines and periodicals ..."                                                            – Midwest Book Review
