9780713663631: Freelance Writing for Newspapers (Writing Handbooks)

With staff cutbacks across the whole of the newspaper industry, the role of freelances is essential and their opportunities have never been greater. Who does what in the making of a newspaper and how does the freelance fit into the editor's plans? This book deals with the importance of marketing and knowing your readers, first contact with editors, how to write regular columns and features, reviewing, interviewing and meeting deadlines - and how to acquire an inexhaustible flow of ideas. There is information on the essential business of writing including rights (and wrongs), tax, plagiarism, keeping records, rates of pay (and how to get paid), syndication, the power of the press, official organisations to help you - and more. With detailed chapters on style, research, making the internet work for you and the rewards of rewriting, this book covers everything you need to know for success.
