The Art of Editing
Now in its 12th edition, this core text is the most comprehensive and widely used textbook on editing in journalism.
Thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate more online and multimedia formats, this hands-on guide offers a detailed overview of the full process of journalistic editing, exploring both the "micro" aspects of the craft, such as style, spelling and grammar, and "macro" aspects, including ethics and legality. Recognizing the pronounced global shift toward online multimedia, the authors continue to stress the importance of taking the best techniques learned in print and broadcast editing and applying them to online journalism. This new edition also includes an in-depth discussion of the role editors and journalists can play in recapturing the public’s trust in the news media. Additional chapters examine how to edit for maximum visual impact and how to edit across media platforms, teaching students how to create a polished product that is grounded in the best practices of journalism.
The Art of Editing, 12th edition, remains an essential resource for students of journalism across all media and levels interested in editing, design and media writing, as well as for professionals seeking to refine and refresh their skill set.
Accompanying online features include instructor PowerPoints and student exercises.
