In a world where speed is of the essence, editors have more work than ever before. Yet the heart of the job stays the same: to help writers discover powerful stories and tell them in ways that will resonate with readers.

Get expert, practical advice from award-winning editors in this package of Seminar Snapshots recorded at The Poynter Institute in 2013. You'll learn how to work with writers to generate better story ideas and shape those stories. You'll also get a toolkit of tips to make you more effective as an editor.

What You'll Learn

Brainstorming Great Ideas

Sometimes you're lucky and you stumble upon a good story idea. But what about the rest of the time? Learn from veteran editors about how they get their teams to brainstorm and develop exciting story ideas. With Tom Huang, Sunday & Enterprise Editor at The Dallas Morning News, and Sandy Banisky, Abell Professor in Baltimore Journalism at the Philip Merrill College of Journalism, the University of Maryland, and former deputy managing editor of The (Baltimore) Sun.

Coaching Writers

It's often been said that the more time you spend coaching writers early on in their stories, the less you'll need to fix the stories in the end. In this session, you'll learn strategies, techniques and questions that can help you coach writers to produce stories that are not only clear and focused, but powerful and compelling. With Kelley Benham, an award-winning writer and editor at the Tampa Bay Times, and Sandy Banisky, Abell Professor in Baltimore Journalism at the Philip Merrill College of Journalism, the University of Maryland, and former deputy managing editor of The (Baltimore) Sun.

With Sandy Banisky, Abell Professor in Baltimore Journalism at the Philip Merrill College of Journalism, the University of Maryland, and former deputy managing editor of The (Baltimore) Sun.
