From the Back Cover:

 

  • An increased emphasis on online feature writing includes a thoroughly revised examination of Internet-assisted research and looks at the burgeoning new market for freelance writers—Internet writing.
  • Includes biographies of three new Pulitzer winners for feature writing—Andrea Elliott of The New York Times (2007), Gene Weingarten of The Washington Post Magazine (2008), and Lane DeGregory of the St. Petersburg Times (2009)—in Chapter 1.
  • Examines a new Pulitzer Prize–winning multimedia feature article by Weingarten in Chapter 2. As with all writing examples in this book, articles and excerpts are accompanied by a careful analysis of the authors’ writing techniques.
  • Adds invaluable case-history comments and writing aids from several new Pulitzer winners—Lane DeGregory, in particular—in Chapters 5 and 6.
  • Expands discussion about the multimedia journalism potential for the three Pulitzer Prize–winning stories featured in Chapter 7, as well as an exploration of the multimedia used to present the 2006 Pulitzer Prize–winning feature story.
  • "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
