Book Description

January 1, 2010 0495001295 978-0495001294
THINK LIKE AN EDITOR is designed for the new breed of editors who are evolving at the same time news and information sharing is changing. The book encourages students to apply themselves confidently, to think analytically, to examine information with scrutiny, and to see the big picture. Organized by the 50 strategies of editing and working, each "strategy section" runs in length from two to six pages, which makes content easy to find for both students and professors. The text combines an examination of depth of content--teaching students not only what to do as an editor--with insight into the process behind editorial decision making. Full of tips, lists, and memory aids THINK LIKE AN EDITOR works similarly to a brief handbook of editing. Both basic skills and advanced concepts of editing are covered.

About the Author

Steve Davis has worked in newsrooms of all sizes since 1977, when he graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelor of journalism, news editorial sequence. Since 1999, he has taught at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, where he is chair of the Department of Newspaper and Online Journalism. Steve's 30-year career in newsrooms and classrooms has covered these stops: "Clarion-Ledger" in Jackson, MS; "Democrat and Chronicle", Rochester, NY; "Gannett New Media", Rosslyn, VA; "USA TODAY", Rosslyn, VA; and "Public Opinion", Chambersburg, PA. Steve has kept current with the evolving news profession by designing a professional internship, which he served for five weeks at USA TODAY, and through multimedia training. Steve also is co-author of "Click on Democracy: The Internet's Power to Change Political Apathy into Civic Action," an examination of how everyday Americans employed online tools to influence and participate in the 2000 presidential election. Steve teaches reporting and writing for multiple platforms. He has traveled extensively with students to South Africa and Liberia to give them global experiences. Students produced multimedia stories from their trips. Steve also directed the News21 program at the Newhouse School for two years, in which students traveled around the country to produce their multimedia stories.

At the Newhouse School, Emilie teaches beginning and advanced editing courses, multimedia storytelling, and an internship practicum in which students work at professional news organizations during the semester. She also teaches a six-week summer "boot camp" news writing and reporting course for incoming graduate students majoring in the magazine-newspaper-online and arts journalism programs. Emilie has relied on multimedia training to keep current with the news profession.
