Specialist Journalismby Barry Turner
Synopses & Reviews
Combining practical 'how to' skills with reflection on the place of each specialism in the industry, this guide features the skills needed to cover specialist areas, including writing match reports for sport, reviewing the arts, and dealing with complex information for science. The book will also discuss how specialist journalists have contributed to the mainstream news agenda, as well as analysing how different issues have been covered in each specialism, such as the credit crunch, global warming, school league tables and the celebrity culture in sport.
The book includes interviews with professionals talking about their fields of work and copious examples from a wide range of online, print and broadcast markets, including daily and weekly papers, specialist and B2B magazines, the ethnic press and 'alternative' publications such as gay, feminist and left-wing press.
