Excerpt from How to Write for the Press A Practical Handbook for Beginners in JournalismSo numerous are the handbooks on practical journalism and authorship that the addition of yet another to the list may seem to call for a few words of explanation, if not apology.By way of this, I would state, in the first place, that the majority of such works have been written by men whose success in the realm to which they have posed as guides has been somewhat equivocal That is to say, men whose connection with journalism has been of the very slightest nature, men who have had no real experience of practical newspaper work, have taken upon themselves the office of giving advice to others when they themselves stood much in need of it It is quite unnecessary to mention names in this connection, as experienced journalists are well aware of the facts Now, for a man who has not spent years in going through the daily work of a practical journalist, and has some difficulty in getting his own contributions accepted, to offer his wisdom and counsel to the beginner in journalism is nothing less than an impertinence The bald headed barber who urges you to buy his hair restorer and the individual in question are near relatives.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
