Fundamentals of Journalism: Reporting, Writing and Editing
Affordable, No-Nonsense Textbook for College Newswriting Courses Too long, too vapid and too expensive. Like many journalism instructors, R. Thomas Berner was familiar with these complaints, which college students often made about the textbooks assigned in their reporting, writing and copy editing classes. So Berner, a professor emeritus at Pennsylvania State University, decided to write Fundamentals of Journalism: Reporting, Writing and Editing, a student-friendly book with an affordable list price of only $29.95. This 356-page book distills much of the content in other books Berner wrote during his 28 years at Penn State, which included The Process of Writing News, Writing Literary Features, The Literature of Journalism, The Process of Editing, and Language Skills for Journalists.
