About Making Important News Interesting

Based on the premise that a fresh approach is needed in public affairs
journalism, this guide offers real-world examples of reporting and
writing that put citizens in the center of public debates, educate them
on important issues, and break with convention to give energy to civic
news. With dozens of exercises for both the classroom and newsroom,
budding journalists get pointers on story selection and ways to use
lively writing to engage readers and keep them coming back on a daily
basis.
