Book Description

The web and social media are revolutionizing sportswriting, with today's beat writers expected to provide hungry fans with instant Twitter updates, in-game analysis, blog posts and traditional coverage. National Sports Journalism Center columnist Jason Fry collects 19 of his best essays into one volume, offering today's sportswriters a wealth of invaluable advice about writing for the web, blogging, using social media, access and coverage in the digital age, and how new digital outlets and habits are remaking journalism careers and the practices of athletes, agents, teams and leagues.

Fry, a veteran of The Wall Street Journal Online and co-writer of the renowned Mets blog Faith and Fear in Flushing, offers clear-eyed arguments and practical advice for digital natives and print veterans alike, informed by more than a decade of web experience and a lifelong love of sports and sportswriting.

More About the Author

I'm the author of The Jupiter Pirates series, published by HarperCollins. In the first book, Hunt for the Hydra, we meet Tycho, Yana and Carlo Hashoone. They're crewers above the privateer Shadow Comet, siblings and competitors. Each wants to be the next captain of their family's starship -- but only one of them will be chosen.

The Jupiter Pirates is part high-seas adventure and part space-age epic -- I've had a blast writing the series and can't wait to share it with people. Officially the Jupiter Pirates books are for kids 8-12, but readers far older than that will enjoy them too.

As for me, I'm a writer, editor, and occasional journalism consultant based in Brooklyn, N.Y, where I live with my wife Emily, my son Joshua and about a metric ton of baseball cards and Star Wars stuff. I've written more than two dozen Star Wars books and short stories for publishers including Random House, DK, Scholastic and Disney Books. Before striking out on my own as an independent writer, I spent more than 12 years at The Wall Street Journal Online, where I wrote the Real Time column about technology and co-wrote The Daily Fix, a daily roundup of great sportswriting. I co-write Faith and Fear in Flushing (www.faithandfearinflushing.com), a blog about the New York Mets, with my friend Greg Prince.

If that seems like an odd mix, well, I think so too. But one way or another, I've written or worked with writers nearly all my life. It's all I ever wanted to do, and I'm profoundly grateful that I've been able to do it.

Whether you're writing about a far-off galaxy, a nearby baseball team or the promise of technology, the path to becoming a successful writer is the same: Write every day, learn from other writers and from good editors, push your writing to make sure it's as clear and engaging as possible, and value every form of writing you get to do. And be nice.
