Best Newspaper Writing

2008-2009 Edition
Edited by:


September 2008 | 504 pages | CQ Press

Bring the Poynter faculty into your classroom! 

For more than 25 years, Poynter faculty have presented the year’s best newswriting and community service photojournalism with the winners and finalists of the American Society of Newspaper Editors annual competition. An ideal reader for aspiring journalists, the volume provides quality models students can study and emulate.

Poynter’s renowned faculty—including Roy Peter Clark, Karen Dunlap, Tom French, Kenny Irby, Chip Scanlan, and Keith Woods—take your students “Behind the Story” with the book’s much heralded features. In-depth interviews with the winners let readers benefit from unique insight into how these reporters developed their stories into, in some cases, Pulitzer Prize–winning pieces. Ethical challenges are tackled, as are discussions of how to report and present news online.“Sources Say” features offer students perspective on a piece from those at the heart of the story, while the ever-popular “X-Ray Readings” are back, dissecting articles to show students exactly how writers ply their craft, sentence by sentence.

Always covering the range of journalism, this edition showcases sections on breaking news, investigative reporting, editorials, narrative writing, columns, photojournalism, plus new sections on covering immigration, race and ethnicity, and writing about human connections.
