Writing to Deadlinetakes the reader into the mind of the nonfiction writer, demystifying the process by which journalists clarify confusion and present significant information under demanding restrictions of time and space. This is an essential book for working journalists, professors and students of journalism, directors of newspaper inservice writing programs, and anyone who wants to learn more about: the news-writing process reporting and writing for surprise focusing your story draft writing editing and fine-tuning case studies of real journalists at work.
