From the Back Cover:

Avowedly practical and concise, instantly engaging and brimmingwith ideas and expertise, this comprehensive guide to writing– and selling – engaging features in print and fordigital platforms is offered in a lively new edition. Freshmaterial includes new chapters on storytelling for blogs anddigital media, as well as updated facts and referencesthroughout.

The authors’ pragmatic approach aims to help buddingwriters hone their skills and launch their careers, with examplesand ideas that spell out the ‘ABCs’ of non-fictionstorytelling: accuracy, brevity and clarity. Too many articles,they say, are one draft short of an ‘A’ (if the writeris a student) or of acceptance, if the writer is a freelancer. Thebook maps out the pitfalls standing in the way of success, andprovides expert tips on avoiding them. Practicing what they teach,the writing team has ensured this handbook is as entertaining as itis informative and concise as it is comprehensive.

Third edition now accompanied by a website with a wealth ofresources including PowerPoint presentations, handouts, andQ&As. See www.wiley.com/go/sumnerandmiller.
