Practical journalism: how to write news
Practical Journalism: How to Write News introduces the skills needed to become a journalist in the digital age. Easy to read, the book draws on interviews with dozens of working journalists. They share their thoughts on the profession and we watch them work - selecting stories, carrying out interviews, and writing scripts. There are chapters on interviewing, research techniques, and news writing. Further chapters cover working in broadcasting and online, media law, and ethics. Each chapter concludes with activities and a list of further reading and a glossary of terms is included at the end of the book.
