Writing and Journalism

The Vision & World of Journalists

What is journalism? The word journalism means many things. It calls for facility to write well at least in one language. A journalist should be able to write well in simple style to convey his/her ideas and facts that the readers can easily understand. A journalist should have insight into things to be written about. He/she should have the ability to understand and communicate a fact or situation to his/her reader.

All these things are covered in writing this book. This book is also the result of many years of my experiences as a writer, editor, columnist, reporter and translator apart from my professional training in journalism.

Then, this book is also enhanced by my experiences of conducting workshops and seminars in news reporting and creative writing all our India and abroad for a number of years.

So I hope that this book will serve as a guide not only to the students of journalism and also one and all who wish to improve their skills and talents in news reporting editing and creative writing.
