Real Feature Writing emphasizes story shape and structure by illustrating several distinct types of feature and non-fiction stories, all drawn from the real world. Author Abraham Aamidor presents a collection of distinct non-deadline story types (profile, trend, focus, advocacy, and more), providing an introduction to each story type, a full-text example, a critical analysis of the example, and clear directions for producing similar stories. In this second edition, Aamidor and his guest contributors (all with real-world journalistic experience) demonstrate in clear, honest language how to write features. New for this edition are: *updated examples of feature writing, integrated throughout the text;*a chapter on ethical journalism, which takes a critical look at propaganda;*a chapter on international perspectives, including coverage of issues in the Middle East;*chapters on research, freelancing, content editing, copyediting, and literary journalism. This text is appropriate for upper-level journalism students, and will be a valuable resource for freelance writers and young working journalists needing guidance on writing features.

The Rise of Subjective and Confessional Journalism

This book argues that the personal voice, which is often disparaged in journalism teaching, is and always has been a prevalent form of journalism. Paradoxically, the aim of 'objective' reporters is often to be known for a distinctive 'voice'. This personal voice is becoming increasingly visible in the context of 'the confessional society'.

In 1998 Susan Anker set out to write a book that would help developmental students to see writing as vitally relevant to their lives beyond required English courses. The phenomenal success of Real Writing and testimonials from many adopters confirm this core belief. Students are motivated to learn and improve when they connect the ability to write well with their larger goals — with what they want to do in life and who they want to become. A range of features in the book shows writing to be an essential and achievable skill. In Profiles of Success, former students, now employed in a variety of professions, describe the academic, financial, and personal challenges they have overcome and the importance of good writing skills to their work. Presenting instruction in manageable increments, Real Writing features the "Four Basics" of each type of writing and begins its full grammar coverage with the "Four Most Serious Errors." With abundant and lively practices, assignments, and activities, Real Writing successfully motivates students to improve their writing as no other text does. In this edition Susan Anker continues to find new ways to help students, encouraging them to connect with their college communities and, as always, to connect their writing with their larger goals.

Writing the Real

A Bilingual Anthology of Contemporary French Poetry

Author: Nina Parish,Emma Wagstaff

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9781910392256

Category: French poetry

Page: 244

View: 6113

Since the 1960s, poetry in French has been understood in terms of two competing approaches: searching for 'presence' on the one hand, 'litt�ralit�' - refiguring the everyday - on the other. Contemporary forms of both are found in this anthology, from the 'new lyricism' of Bonhomme and Maulpoix to the refracted politics of 'post-poetry' in Tarkos and Gleize. The dichotomy, however, quickly breaks down and many poets refuse to be categorised in this way: recent publications include the interdisciplinary and collaborative work of poets such as Alferi, Chaton, Game and Macher; the focus on formal constraint in M�tail and Espitallier; Portugal's exploration of the impact of new technologies. Writing the Real features 18 key contemporary French-language poets alongside English translations by leading poets and translators.
