Description

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" is two to six pages long, which makes content easy to find for both students and professors. The text combines an examination of content depth 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. The second edition features new strategies to help students think creatively in a world of social media, handle multiple platforms, and keep readers engaged. Both basic skills and advanced concepts of editing are covered.

Review quote

"I can honestly say that one of the best things about this text is that it is ONE book; the other text I used had a handbook, a workbook, and an exam book."
