More About This Textbook

Overview

The most comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of editing available

The Art of Editing continues to evolve to meet the needs of today's students. The authors address the major changes taking place in the media industry and the changing patterns in news consumption. Being a journalist today requires not only traditional writing and editing for print but also for the Web. Aspiring newspaper journalists today must also become multimedia journalists. With this in mind, the authors pay significant attention to the other areas in which students are increasingly finding jobs: online media, corporate magazines, broadcasting, public relations, and advertising.
