About the Book

Newswriting Guide has been an invaluable reference tool for journalism students and teachers for 20 years. In this updated fourth edition, you'll find quick answers to all your questions about the ten basic areas that are vital to student reporters.

Style, format, punctuation, quotations, how to write a lead, interviewing techniques-it's all here, in concise, well-organized sections to make it easy to find what you need.

It's not just for students: publicity writers, newsletter editors and almost any writer will find it useful and user-friendly.

Whether you wonder whether to use an apostrophe in "its" or you need ideas on starting a feature story, Newswriting Guide has the answers.

"This is a mini-text that effectively summarizes what the texts have to say. It can be used not only by school paper staffs but by club publicity staffs too, in fact by anyone who has to deal with media on a regular basis. And after a student has read the 'regular' text, this is a handy reminder of the material covered there."
-Ed Eaton, Former Head, Journalism Department, Green River Community College.
