Edited by a professor of journalism and a professor of English literature, this newswriting anthology focuses on the teaching of quality journalistic writing and the ways in which current writers approach the craft of storytelling. Through selected unabridged articles by nationally known writers (such as Dave Barry and Lisa Grunwald) as well as local journalists, this book investigates the question of how writers take risks--physical, psychological, stylistic, etc.--in the course of investigating and writing a story. The book deals with many of the standard issues of traditional journalism, such as objectivity, first-person vs. third-person accounts, reliability of sources, and the decision-making process of the writer, but with regard to the new challenges writers face in the nineties.
