This basic introduction to print journalism editing recognizes that recognizes that students need to learn editorial skills even though they may not be editors. The authors begin with an overview of the editor's roles in journalism, and introduce editing as a creative, vital profession (within the context of the many changes going on in newspapers). Two chapters on basic grammar precede particularly strong chapters on law and ethics for editors. Two chapters on basic editing skills with headlines and news services are followed by three chapters on working with the visual aspects of editing: pictures, infographics, type, and design.

Dorothy A. Bowles is a Journalism Professor at the University of Tennessee, where she teaches courses in editing, political communications, and communications law and ethics. She previously taught editing and law for nine years at the William Allen White School of Journalism at the University of Kansas. She has worked as a reporter and editor at newspapers in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Kansas, Texas and Louisiana. She has also worked in corporate and school public relations.

Diane L. Borden joined the School of Communication at San Diego State University in August 1998 and was named Executive Assistant to SDSU President Stephen L. Weber in July 2001. Prior to joining the president's office, Dr. Borden taught mass communication law and theory as well as courses in journalism. She continues to teach a graduate seminar in first amendment law each spring. She has also served as the project director for the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE), where she was responsible for the administration of more than $1.5 million in grant projects. She came to academe after a lengthy career in professional journalism, including 10 year tenure with Gannett Co. Inc., during which time she worked as an editor and publisher in a variety of media markets.

William L. Rivers , who is now deceased, was Edwards Professor Emeritus of Communication at Stanford University. He worked as a journalist in many newspapers before he began teaching including State-Times, News Herald, and The Morning Advocate . Some of his writings include Writing: Craft and Art , Finding Facts , and Broadcast Newswriting .nbsp;
