This second edition of the classic guide to newswriting brings aspiring journalists up to date on what it takes to put together a news story, from conception to execution. A veteran journalist, editor, and educator, Fox walks the beginning writer through the principles and techniques of organizing a news story and writing it with style and depth. In nine readable chapters, he covers essential journalistic skills, from lead writing and story development to handling quotes and composing feature stories. Fox also pays special attention to questions of style and context, varieties of the basic newswriting structure, and alternatives to traditional story forms. His approach firmly grounds a reader in the basic "rules" of newswriting without allowing the process to become a straitjacket. More than a handy and authoritative manual, Writing the News is also an appreciation of the craft of newswriting as a modem art form. As such, it is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in print journalism or interested in the rhetoric of news.
