Writing and Reporting the News

Third Edition

Jerry Lanson and Mitchell Stephens

Writing and Reporting the News, Third Edition, is a comprehensive and accessible introductory text for journalism students. Jerry Lanson and Mitchell Stephens provide thorough instruction on writing and reporting, hundreds of examples of good and bad writing and extensive opportunities to apply their advice through practical exercises. Based on the authors' careers as journalists and journalism professors--and on the experience of dozens of other first-rate reporters--this unique textbook/workbook gives students a clear, logical introduction to the craft of journalism.

Discussions and examples have been updated throughout for this new edition. A new section covers writing for the Internet, and the authors have also added boxed sections in which reporters offer tips on how to cover specific types of stories and beats.
