The Art of Editing continues to be the standard by which editing texts are judged, offering the most comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of editing available.
Long viewed as the "classic" in the field of editing, The Art of Editing continues to evolve to meet the needs of today's students. In addition to a focus on traditional newspaper editing, the authors pay significant attention to the other areas in which students are increasingly finding jobs: online media, corporate magazines, broadcasting, public relations and advertising. The ninth edition of The Art of
Editing details the major changes revolutionizing the media industry and prepares students to work in convergent environments, where skill in print, broadcast and online operations is essential.
