CREATIVE EDITING has been consistently praised by reviewers for its comprehensive coverage, excellent organization, and currency of issues relevant to editing copy. The New Edition continues to live up to this reputation through consistent reinforcement and practical application of editing concepts. The book covers all aspects of editing for print and online media and provides ample practice exercises for users to demonstrate that they know how to apply principles from the book. This book does not assume that readers understand grammar fundamentals. It starts with basic language skills and leads readers through every phase of a professional copy editor's job. The book's textbook/workbook approach allows users to practice their skills as they learn. This edition covers editing as it relates to public relations, digital editing for Web sources and magazine editing. In addition, it includes separate chapters on communications law and ethics, along with exercises designed to help users understand practical applications of legal and ethical principles.

About the Author:

Dorothy A. Bowles is a Journalism Professor at the University of Tennessee, where she teaches courses in editing, political communications, and communications law and ethics. She previously taught editing and law for nine years at the William Allen White School of Journalism at the University of Kansas. She has worked as a reporter and editor at newspapers in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Kansas, Texas and Louisiana. She has also worked in corporate and school public relations.

Review:

" I adopted CREATIVE EDITING because it best fulfills the needs of my course. The text also is the most thorough in all areas that I cover in the course. I like the text and will keep using it. [Other books] have been recently sent to me, but CREATIVE EDITING still gives the best coverage to all the areas that I teach."

"It is the most comprehensive general editing book available and one that I encourage students to keep as a good reference book for the future. It is filled with useful information."

"The journalism faculty suggested I use CREATIVE EDITING. I knew nothing about it but it came highly recommended. It has turned out to be indispensable. It organizes grammatical challenges well, provides understandable solutions and doesn't give the students and overload of them, like other texts might."

"I chose CREATIVE EDITING because it appeared to be more up to date and more in keeping with my editorial philosophy than the texts I had used before. So unhappy was I with those books that, for a couple of semesters, before CREATIVE EDITING came along, I used no text at all. I haven't seen any other texts that I find as useful as CREATIVE EDITING, which seems to strive to stay up to date."
