Convergent Journalism: An Introduction is a pioneering textbook that will teach you how to master the skills needed to be a journalist in today’s converged media landscape. This book shows you what makes a news story effective, and how to identify the best platform for a particular story, whether it’s the Web, broadcast or print. The bedrock tenets of journalism remain at the core of this book, including information dissemination, storytelling, audience engagement. After establishing these journalism basics, the book goes into great detail on how to tailor a story to meet the needs of various media. Vincent F. Filak has brought this second edition completely up to date through: A thorough reorganization of the chapters, which provides a newer, more practical approach focused on "how to do convergent journalism," rather than simply observing the current state of converged media. A number of new pedagogical features to improve learning and retention, including examples, exercises, breakout boxes and more. Coverage of additional topics such as issues of law and ethics in digital media, and also writing for mobile platforms and social media. A companion website with links to additional examples of quality text, images and multimedia for students, as well as an instructor site with a test bank, suggested exercises and discussion questions.

This is Chronicle I of III. In this chronicle I take you deep into my soul. I was beautiful, young and innocent, so unaware of the danger and disappointment that was waiting for me around the corner. I share in unlimited detail, my first experience having sex, my struggle with poverty and homelessness. My fight with mental, physical, and sexual abuse, and worst of all, rape. I withhold nothing in this book. I wrote the chronicles, got ready to publish them, then I got scared.So, I put them in a closet on a shelf and I locked them away for more than twenty years. Now, I have taken them out and I am finally ready to reveal them. I hope by telling my story, I can be encouraging to those of you who have experienced similar tragedies. Please know that you are not alone. Maybe some of you are still suffering or struggling. Please know that joy is around the corner. Sometimes we just have to open our eyes and our hearts and grab it.
