Editorial Review

Product Description
Pick up the Sunday paper and consider how many stories it takes to fill all those pages. How can any newspaper staff produce so many stories every day, every week, every month of the year and keep up with breaking news too?
They can't.
They use freelancers.
You can be one of those freelancers.
This book serves as a guide to newspaper freelancing both for beginners and for more experienced writers who want to expand their markets. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect starting point for breaking into a notoriously difficult industry.
Sue Fagalde Lick's FREELANCING FOR NEWSPAPERS: WRITING FOR AN OVERLOOKED MARKET is a winner: it shows how to locate newspapers which use freelancers (as opposed to many who only use staff), how to pitch an editor for a story idea, how to interview and gain assignments, and more. Students of media studies and journalism will find it the perfect starting point for breaking into a notoriously difficult industry.

5-0 out of 5 stars A solid guide to writing for newspapers
I remember looking in bookstores many years back and being surprised that I could never find a book about freelancing for newspapers. This is just the book I was looking for back then, and I'm glad I have it now. It's a well written, well organized book that sparked my thoughts and made me see writing opportunities I hadn't really considered before. It includes quotes from newspaper editors about what they're looking for, an analysis of which types of articles are usually written by freelancers, a guide to queries (with good examples written by the author), advice about how to conduct interviews and do research, a submission tracking sheet... in short, it's an excellent primer about both the craft and business end of freelancing for newspapers, and well worth the price. My single complaint is that it could have used a better copy editor, but I still highly recommend it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Where's the KINDLE version???
A must-have for writers. Great for journalists or for anyone who has the need to communicate. Which includes most of us. Compact as the book is, would love to see in Kindle version!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great and Essential Read for New Writers
I love this book! As a working journalist for some national newspapers the sentiment here reminded me of what my editors told me when I started out. I also work as a writing professor and started using this as mandatory reading for my newspaper and magazine writing class. The basic premise of the book is to write tightly, clearly and to rid one's work of irritating nonsense and twaddle. It's the only way to get published so the advice is best followed. The examples of news writing that the author offers are also very helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent refresher--but have your dictionary handy
A superb refresher for veteran journalists--and light-hearted. Cappon is as much a humorist as an editor and instructor. Besides its wealth of ideas and corrections, the guide is a fun read. But be within arm's reach of your dictionary as you proceed. Cappon assumes such terms as "rococo," "fatuous," "tautology" and "pedagogue" are in your casual vocabulary. And of course you know what "bowwow language" is. (Are you certain?)

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource
This is one of the few writing books that I return to again and again. It emphasizes creating clean, concise, active and engaging copy. It's filled with examples of what not to do from news stories (with corrected versions, too) and is thin enough to read in just a few hours.

Any journalist will find this book a powerful tool to help improve their own news writing.

1-0 out of 5 stars Needs a Re-write!
I couldn't believe my eyes! Wouldn't you expect this writing guide to be grammatically correct, at the very least? It isn't. Something else it isn't is quickly accessible. You have to read through the sarcasm, and then see a "corrected" version of a poorly written example. Unfortunately, that version needs work, too. Usually, I keep every book I buy, or give them to friends or charities, but this one went into the trash. Yikes! ... Read more
