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 information to anyone involved in print journalism or interested in the rhetoric of news.
