About Seminar Snapshots

A Seminar Snapshot features video highlights that capture the key learning of a seminar presentation.

Ever wonder what sets apart the great editors from the merely good or average? Build your tool kit by picking up the tips, tricks (and, yes, secrets) of successful veteran editors.

This Seminar Snapshot contains edited video highlights from a presentation by Sandy Banisky. Banisky is the Abell Professor in Baltimore Journalism at the Philip Merrill College of Journalism, the University of Maryland, College Park and a former deputy managing editor of The (Baltimore) Sun.

Banisky compiles suggestions from some of the best editors in the industry and breaks them down into usable tips.

This video snapshot is part of a daylong workshop at Poynter Institute on April 22, 2013. You can see all the on-demand replays from that event here: Editors' Boot Camp 2013: A Poynter Broadcast Training Package.
