Auch erfahrene und erfolgreiche Journalisten quälen sich mit ihren Texten. Sie flüchten zum Blumen gießen, brüten endlos über Formulierungen, schreiben zum fünften Mal den gleichen Satz. Stilratgeber helfen da nicht weiter: Sie sagen zwar, wie gute journalistische Texte aussehen sollen - aber nicht, wie man sie schreibt. Dieses Buch schließt eine Lücke: Journalistinnen und Journalisten verschiedener Medien reflektieren ihre Schreiberfahrungen; sie erzählen von den Schwierigkeiten und dem gelegentlichen Glück des Textens. Sie folgen dem Prinzip, dass der Austausch von Erfahrungen mehr helfen kann als kluge Ratschläge. Analysen zum Schreibprozess und Übungen des Creative Writing runden den Band ab. Mit Beiträgen von Marie-Luise Scherer, Angelika Overath, Udo Zindel und vielen anderen.

Nachrichten sind und bleiben die Basis des Journalismus - auch im Online-Zeitalter. Für ihre Auswahl und Präsentation sind deshalb brauchbare und bewährte Regeln von besonderer Bedeutung.

Darüber hinaus werden konkrete Qualitäts-Standards für die Medienpraxis formuliert. Der Band ist das Nachfolgewerk von "Nachrichtenschreiben", das nach seinem Erscheinen im Jahre 1988 mehrfach aufgelegt wurde und zu den erfolgreichsten Lehrbüchern des Journalismus gehört. Zu den Themen der Neuerscheinung gehören auch die ‚hybriden' Darstellungsformen, die sich unter dem Einfluss der harten Medienkonkurrenz und den Bedingungen des Internet entwickeln. Das Buch ist somit eine grundlegende Einführung in den Journalismus.

Searing Indictment of Evil in Hitler's Germany

A searing indictment of evil in Hitler's Germany. Hendrik Hofgen is a man obsessed with becoming a famous actor. When the Nazis come to power in Germany, he willingly renounces his Communist past and deserts his wife and mistress in order to keep on performing. His diabolical performance as Mephistopheles in Faust proves to be the stepping-stone he yearned for: attracting the attention of Hermann Göring, it wins Hofgen an appointment as head of the State Theatre. The rewards - the respect of the public, a castle - like villa, a uplace in Berlin's highest circles - are beyond his wildest dreams. But the moral consequences of his betrayals begin to haunt him, turning his dreamworld into a nightmare.

MFA vs NYC

The Two Cultures of American Fiction
Author: Chad Harbach
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
ISBN: 0374712271
Category: Literary Collections
Page: 320
View: 2801
Writers write—but what do they do for money? In a widely read essay entitled "MFA vs NYC," bestselling novelist Chad Harbach (The Art of Fielding) argued that the American literary scene has split into two cultures: New York publishing versus university MFA programs. This book brings together established writers, MFA professors and students, and New York editors, publicists, and agents to talk about these overlapping worlds, and the ways writers make (or fail to make) a living within them. Should you seek an advanced degree, or will workshops smother your style? Do you need to move to New York, or will the high cost of living undo you? What's worse—having a day job or not having health insurance? How do agents decide what to represent? Will Big Publishing survive? How has the rise of MFA programs affected American fiction? The expert contributors, including George Saunders, Elif Batuman, and Fredric Jameson, consider all these questions and more, with humor and rigor. MFA vs NYC is a must-read for aspiring writers, and for anyone interested in the present and future of American letters.

Full Disclosure

The Perils and Promise of Transparency
Author: Archon Fung,Mary Graham,David Weil
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 1139465139
Category: Political Science
Page: N.A
View: 8384
Governments in recent decades have employed public disclosure strategies to reduce risks, improve public and private goods and services, and reduce injustice. In the United States, these targeted transparency policies include financial securities disclosures, nutritional labels, school report cards, automobile rollover rankings, and sexual offender registries. They constitute a light-handed approach to governance that empowers citizens. However, as Full Disclosure shows these policies are frequently ineffective or counterproductive. Based on a comparative analysis of eighteen major policies, the authors suggest that transparency policies often produce information that is incomplete, incomprehensible, or irrelevant to the consumers, investors, workers, and community residents who could benefit from them. Sometimes transparency fails because those who are threatened by it form political coalitions to limit or distort information. To be successful, transparency policies must place the needs of ordinary citizens at centre stage and produce information that informs their everyday choices.

Casimir, zelf een briljant theoreticus, laat in zijn autobiografie de lezer getuige zijn van de revolutionaire ontwikkelingen die leidden tot de kwantumfysica. De invloed en effecten daarvan op onze moderne samenleving zijn vele malen groter dan de eerste atoomfysici konden vermoeden.

In this unique collection he addresses every aspect of fiction writing-from the writer's vision to his or her audience, from the use of symbolism to swear words, from the mystery of the creative process to the recognizable truth it seeks finally to reveal. His insights will benefit anyone interested in writing fiction or exploring ideas about fiction's role in the broader culture.

Handbook of Communication Competence

In our everyday life, communicative processes are relevant in almost all situations. It is important to know whether you should say something which is adequate in the situation or whether it is better to say nothing at all. Communicative competence is fundamental for a successful life in our society as it is of great importance for all areas of life. Therefore, it is not surprising that communicative competence is the subject of many theoretical and empirical approaches and, in consequence, research on this topic is diverse. We focus our contributions on linguistic aspects of communication. In the centre of interest are linguistic oriented performances of different forms of communicative competence, language acquisition, and language disorders. The topics of this book concern the description of methods for studying language in the brain, the interaction between language and cognition, discourse acquisition of children, literacy acquisition and its precursors, the use and acquisition of the sign language, models and training of writing and reading, nonverbal communicative competence, media competence, communication training, developmental dyslexia, the treatment of stuttering, and the description of language disorders.
