The author has done a great job in updating and revising her useful book. It deserves to be on every journalism student’s reading list and every tutor’s book shelf. It is clear, straightforward and scholarly in a very accessible way. It is bursting with good advice and insight which should benefit all who all read it.
Anna McKane has written a first-class no-nonsense guide to news writing which is suitable for both journalism students and freelance journalists. Her wealth of experience both as a journalist and a lecturer in journalism gives News Writing the edge over similar tomes. It covers all the tenets of good news reporting for both print and online in a way that is clear, informative, and entertaining.
A straightforward, easy to read guide to news writing which should be a valuable tool to all journalism students and a quick reminder for trainee reporters too. Highly recommended.
A competent book, sets out what should be the content of a news writing course. I am looking for something more inspirational and less technical/academic, but I would totally endorse the content of this book
McKane's Newswriting is one of the essential texts for university students.
This book is a great teaching tool for Introduction to Journalism modules, but also for specific modules such as Business Journalism where it is necessary to first introduce journalism concepts and then discuss business journalism.
Book does not use current journalism terms (i.e. the term "intro" is not used by journalists--the appropriate term is "lede" or "lead") and does not go into enough depth. Also the book is presented in a very basic, non-dynamic way. I wish it had more engaging content, graphics, photos, etc.
It is a very good book/manual that will be used as suplemental resource to journalism writing class.
This is an excellent book and a valuable update on the previous edition. I will definitely added to our reading lists and to our library
I found this very useful, particularly on developing reports so that journalists sustain the interest. I have used some of the examples to illustrate points in seminars.
