Overview

Andrews (journalism, Sheffield Hallam U. and U. of Salford, UK), who covers sports for the Independent and Yorkshire Television, provides an introductory overview of how his work is done. The slim text shuns the insider anecdotes that might have been expected for a no-frills outline of the standard tools of the job, from the five W's to interview techniques to going through an agent to reach an athlete. Examples demonstrate various kinds of writing—feature stories, profiles, opinion columns, etc. Chapters cover print, broadcast, and online publishing as well as advice for starting a career and facts about legal and ethical issues.
