Best Newspaper Writing 1999 celebrates the winners of the ASNE Distinguished Writing Awards, including the Jesse Laventhol Awards, created to honor deadline reporting. Bartholomew Sullivan of The Commercial Appeal in Memphis, Tenn., relies on attention to detail and evocative prose to bring his readers to the heart of breaking news, whether it's the conviction of a Ku Klux Klan wizard for a three-decades-old murder of a black civil rights worker, the funeral of country music star Carl Perkins, or a tornado that devastates a small farm community in Arkansas. The News Tribune in Tacoma, Wash., re-creates a deadly avalanche on Mount Rainier through the accounts of those who survived the disaster, combining careful reporting, collaboration with visual journalists, and dramatic storytelling to reveal the human stories behind the news. DeNeen L. Brown of The Washington Post blends meticulous reporting with lyrical and incisive writing in a collection of extraordinary stories that tackle emotionally charged topics such as abortion, racial equality, juvenile justice, and modern-day parenting with honest sensitivity and literary grace. J. Peder Zane of the Raleigh News & Observer provides uncommon insights in columns that use the prism of books to offer provocative commentary on topics as diverse as genocide and slavery, the value of fiction, and the modern curse of tell-all memoirs. Bailey Thomson of the Mobile Register (Ala.) indicts his home state in a blistering series of editorials about failures in education, environment, and political courage that also furnishes an effective catalog of solutions drawn from neighboring states. Mirta Ojito of The New York Times provides apenetrating first-person account of changes in her native Cuba in a powerful example of foreign reporting honored for its ability to help readers understand the impact of international news on their own lives.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Donald M. Murray's lively and inspiring approach to writing and revision does not condescend but invites students into the writer's studio. The ANNIVERSARY EDITION includes a new foreword by Brock Dethier, Writing Program Director at Utah State University and former University of New Hampshire colleague of the late Donald Murray. They met in 1978 and when Dethier later became an adjunct instructor at UNH, struggling to balance his teaching career with his dreams of getting published, Murray was a source of guidance and support. Dethier offers not only an introduction to the man behind the book, but a retrospective of Murray's significant contributions to the Composition world and the ways in which THE CRAFT OF REVISION helps students to actually DO the writing--not just talk about it.

Writing as Craft and Magic, Second Edition, outlines a compelling approach to conceiving, reporting, organizing, and writing articles for today's media. The book revolves around the central idea that writers improve most quickly by combining the powers of technique ("craft") with creativity ("magic"). Applying this method to news and feature writing--both print and online--it focuses on leads, organization, transition, clarity, drama, and other elements that drive good writing toward excellence. Aimed at students in upper-level undergraduate writing and reporting courses, Writing as Craft and Magic provides a clear and succinct instructional system--with practical models, a wealth of examples, and step-by-step guides--to help students understand and apply craft and magic to daily assignments. Author Carl Sessions Stepp, a seasoned journalist at the national level, structures his system in three parts. He first evokes the art of writing, then applies that art to standard journalistic writing, and concludes with a strong section on advanced writing techniques for features. He also offers advice and tips on how newsrooms currently operate in the age of multimedia journalism. This revised edition includes an expanded exercise section at the end of each chapter, more coverage of the demands of multimedia journalism (convergence), and updated chapters on incorporating the Internet into research and writing for the daily news cycle.
