Summary

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.
