Words matter. And good writing matters. Especially in the
information society, in which more writing than ever is
disseminated and read. There may be a lot of dross out there, but
we can also find writing that stands out from the rest. It lodges
in our heads because of its simplicity and style, and because it
says something worth reading. This is 'word byte' writing, a term
that Carolyne Lee coins, defines and explains in this book, and
which she and her contributors encourage their readers to achieve.
A wide range of genres of public and professional writing -
including magazine profiles, newspaper articles and blog posts - is
covered in "Word Bytes". Fourteen appendices provide published
examples of the different genres covered, and exercises to
accompany each chapter are available for purchase online. The
contributions from other professional writers, magazine and
newspaper journalists through to a blogger and web-editor, will
inspire and teach all those who want to learn to recognise and
produce word bytes - writing that gets noticed and read in a world
of information overload.
