If we ask the lay readers why they read newspapers, the obvious answer would be to get news. However, what keeps the newspaper endearing and, in a way, enduring are the longer stories about people behind the news, about the humorous everyday experiences we all have, or the closer look at someone and the unexpected surprises we get in the process. In short, we call these features. In this substantially revised book on Feature Writing, the author with her vast experience discusses various aspects of Feature Writing. She focuses on different types of features found in newspapers—Humour and Satire, Brights, Human Interest Features, Travel Features and News Features—and illustrates each of these. In addition, she provides a detailed description of Profiles, Interviews, and Online Features with examples, and gives a clear analysis of Feature Writing Techniques. Intended as a text for students offering courses in Journalism, this book would also be extremely useful for freelance writers, and anyone who has a flair for writing. What is New to THE SECOND Edition Includes two new chapters on Obituary and Tribute, and Sports and new sections such as Blogs and Professionalism in Journalism. Provides more illustrations culled from recent newspapers. Gives explanatory notes on some key words used in the book, and a section on Vocabulary. What the Reviewers Say In this delightful book on FW [Feature Writing], Meera Raghavendra Rao brings home to us that writing a story or a novel is one way of discovering sequence in experience, of stumbling upon cause and effect in the happenings of a writer’s own life. In my view Meera Raghavendra Rao’s book on FW is an exceptionally good and useful book not only for all students of Journalism but also for all writers interested in FW. —V. Sundaram, News Today The author has used instances from her career spanning more than two decades to illustrate various situations in this book. —Deccan Chronicle The book is a rather exhaustive guide on ways to tell a feature story. Among the other pluses is the Indianness permeating the book—most sample articles are home-brewn. —The Hindu, Metroplus Weekend

Janet Giltrow's Academic Writing: Writing and Reading in the Disciplines has been widely acclaimed in all its editions as a superb textbook—and an important contribution to the pedagogy of introducing university and college students to the conventions of writing in an academic milieu. Giltrow draws meaningfully on theory, especially genre theory, while using specific texts to keep the discussion grounded in the particular. Exercises throughout help students to interpret, summarize, analyze, and compare examples of academic and scholarly writing. The book is intended to demystify scholarly genres, shedding light on their discursive conventions and on academic readers' expectations and values. Academic Writing: An Introduction is a concise version of the full work, designed to be more compact and accessible for use in one-term writing courses. This new edition has been revised throughout and contains many new exercises, updated examples, an expanded discussion of research writing in the sciences, new glossary entries, and a new section on research ethics and the moral compass of the disciplines.

Treatment of Error offers a realistic, well-reasoned account of what teachers of multilingual writers need to know about error and how to put what they know to use. As in the first edition, Ferris again persuasively addresses the fundamental error treatment questions that plague novice and expert writing specialists alike: What types of errors should teachers respond to? When should we respond to them? What are the most efficacious ways of responding to them? And ultimately, what role should error treatment play in the teaching of the process of writing? The second edition improves upon the first by exploring changes in the field since 2002, such as the growing diversity in what is called “L2 writers,” the blurring boundaries between “native” and “non-native” speakers of English, the influence of genre studies and corpus linguistics on the teaching of writing, and the need the move beyond “error” to “second language development” in terms of approaching students and their texts. It also explores what teacher preparation programs need to do to train teachers to treat student error. The second edition features * an updating of the literature in all chapters * a new chapter on academic language development * a postscript on how to integrate error treatment/language development suggestions in Chapters 4-6 into a writing class syllabus * the addition of discussion/analysis questions at the end of each chapter, plus suggested readings, to make the book more useful in pedagogy or teacher development workshops
