9780415729796: Writing and Editing for Digital Media

Writing and Editing for Digital Media, 2nd edition, teaches students how to write effectively for digital spaces―whether crafting a story for a website, blogging or using Twitter to cover a breaking news story or event. The lessons and exercises in each chapter help students build a solid understanding of the ways that digital communications have introduced opportunities for dynamic storytelling and multi-directional communication. Writing and Editing for Digital Media also addresses the graphical, multimedia, hypertextual and interactive elements that come into play when writing for digital platforms and designing digital spaces. The book teaches students not only to create content, but also to become careful, creative managers of that content.

Based on Brian Carroll's extensive experience teaching the course, this revised and updated edition pays particular attention to opportunities presented by the growth of social media and mobile media. Chapters aim to:

  • Assist digital communicators in understanding the social networked, increasingly mobile, always-on, geomapped, personalized media ecosystem;
  • Help writers across multiple communication fields (journalism, marketing, PR, technical writing) make the transition from print to digital;
  • Teach communicators to approach storytelling from a multimedia, multi-modal, interactive perspective.

A companion website with exercises and assignments gives students the tools they need to put theory into practice.

About the Author:

Brian Carroll is Associate Professor of Communication and Director of the Honors Program at Berry College, and Adjunct Professor of Journalism in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the author of When to Stop the Cheering? The Black Press, the Black Community, and the Integration of Professional Baseball (Routledge, 2006).

Review:

"Writing & Editing for Digital Media is an ambitious and engaging textbook that successfully melds core journalistic values with dynamic, multi-platform storytelling techniques." ―Ken Paulson, Dean of the College of Mass Communication, Middle Tennessee State University, and former editor in chief of USA Today

"Carroll’s book has its own identity and personality. Writing & Editing for Digital Media offers thought-provoking perspectives on writing as technology while also providing students with concrete lessons in writing, editing, and reading in digital environments. The book is ideal for digital journalism but works well for any Web writing course." ―Scott Warnock, Drexel University

"Brian Carroll's book reflects how the rise of online media has changed how we communicate. From blogging to search engine optimization to social media, Writing & Editing for Digital Media is an essential resource for students who are broadening their writing skills." ―Andy Bechtel, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"Carroll’s text remains the best of its kind. This second edition continues to stress the need for smart, engaging digital writing and sharp editing. Suggested chapter exercises and activities show students how to achieve both, and lessons learned can apply in multiple industries – news, public relations, marketing – and across multiple platforms." ―Ellen M. Mrja, Minnesota State University, Mankato
