Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This is not just a copy-editing handbook with a chapter on headlines thrown in. Instead, it begins with a lengthy section on headline writing as a fast and effective means of teaching all copy-editing skills<-->including grammar, mechanics, spelling, libel, the newspaper's taboos, and news presentation that fits the paper's audience. Ellis served on six copydesks for nearly fifteen years and as a copy-writing professor at McNeese State University in Louisiana for eight years. Annotation c.
