This manual by journalists for journalists aims to illustrate fresh ways to write stories that will enchant and compel readers. Nineteen essays from veteran professional news and feature writers bridge the worlds of classroom and newsroom to provide inspiration and instruction to everyone from students to professionals. Readers are taken through the entire process of writing, as essays break down the various stages of reporting, writing and revising to show the improvements that can be made at each level. Particular aspects of writing are also illuminated, such as finding story ideas; structuring stories; creating cadence, rhythm and voice; using metaphor, foreshadowing or symbol to enrich stories; or developing effective strategies for revisions. The guide should be useful for anyone who writes for newspapers, magazines, public relations, in-house publications, scientific or business sources, or anyone simply interested in learning sharper ways to write non-fiction narrative.
