What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Rachele Kanigel is a leader within journalism education.  Her survival guide deserves a spot in every journalism classroom and student newspaper newsroom. As I'll be telling my students after assigning them the book: It's not just required reading. It's a must-read."
Daniel Reimold, University of Tampa

"In more than one college newsroom I've visited, I've seen pages from the Survival Guide taped to walls and tacked to bulletin boards — and not by advisers but by students. That's when you know you have a good book about student journalism: When the students are reading it without some adult telling them to."
Michael Koretzky, Florida College Press Association president

"Easy to navigate and full of tips, checklists and examples, I consider this a must-have resource for any student journalist. If I were starting a student newspaper or Web site from scratch, I'd use this guide as a framework."
Tom Nelson, Director of Student Media, Loyola Marymount University

"Few people address the components of the student newspaper the way Rachele Kanigel does. The Student Newspaper Survival Guide tells student journalists how to cover their campus but has been updated with chapters on using social media and technology to tell those stories. It provides practical resources for students who want to produce a good newspaper and grow as journalists in the 21st century."
Sally Renaud, Eastern Illinois University

"The Student Newspaper Survival Guide is chock full of great advice, helpful tools and practical examples about all aspects of the student press. From text to visuals, print to online, and writing to editing, this book has it all."
Rich Cameron, Cerritos College
