A friend gave me Jock Lauterer's Community Journalism, Second Edition, when we first purchased our community newspaper. . . . It has been an invaluable resource since, proof positive by the dog-eared, turned-down corners, with heavily highlighted pages filled with pieces of paper as bookmarks. Not only did this book guide our first several years in the newspaper business, but it was also instrumental in the direction we have taken. . . . I look forward to CJ-3.--Laurie Fagen, Editor/Publisher, The Southern Chandler/Ocotillo News, Arizona
While overall newspaper circulation has continued to decline, community newspapers have remained strong. Most graduates of journalism programs will work for community newspapers. In my state, all but two of the approximately 150 newspapers are classified as community newspapers, defined by Lauterer as newspapers with fewer than 50,000 circulation. Most are much smaller. The prevalence of community newspapers is one reason my community journalism class is the required capstone class for our journalism majors.--Elizabeth Hansen, Eastern Kentucky University
From the Inside Flap
Regarded as the primary textbook and sourcebook for the teaching and practice of local journalism and newspaper publishing in the U.S., this book addresses the issues a small-town newspaper writer or publisher is likely to face, from why community journalism is important and distinctive; to hints for reporting, news writing, and feature writing with a "community spin"; to handling design, production, photojournalism, and staff management. This edition includes a new "Best Practices" chapter for online newspapers.
