Poynter Paper No. 7: Writer in the Newsroom
The Poynter Papers are an occasional series of essays and monographs offering challenging perspectives on the practice and study of journalism. The papers are published at the rate of three or four per year, each on a topic inspired by Poynter programs. “We want these papers to inform and illuminate,” said Roy Peter Clark, who edits the series. “We want to publish short, powerful pieces that can be read quickly, but that leave a lasting impression.”
In Writer in the Newsroom, Donald M. Murray writes a moving narrative about life as a reporter, writer, teacher, and above all, student of the word. The book also includes “A Lifetime Apprenticeship,” Murray’s keynote speech at the 1994 National Writers’ Workshop in Hartford, Conn.; a conversation with the author for anyone interested in news, writing, and the struggle to engage readers and make meaning clear; plus a complete bibliography of Murray’s writing on writing.
