The Newspapers Handbook is the essential guide to working as a newspaper journalist. It examines the ever-changing, everyday skills of newspaper reporting and explores the theoretical, ethical, moral and political dimensions of a journalist's job.
The Newspapers Handbook encourages a critical approach to newspaper practice. Thoroughly rewritten for the third edition and using a range of new examples from tabloid and broadsheet newspapers, non-mainstream and local and regional publications, Richard Keeble examines key journalistic skills such as the art of interviewing, news reporting, reviewing, freelancing and feature writing. Newly updated chapters from Henry Clother, David Northmore and John Turner explore the specialisms of covering the courts, investigative journalism and local government reporting.
The Newspapers Handbook includes:
* Interviews with journalists about their working practices
* Examples of writing from a range of recent publications
* A guide to training and career opportunities
* The importance of new technologies for the newspaper industry
* An updated glossary of key terms and a revised bibliography.
