#Tip of the day from Journalism.co.uk – six ways to avoid common errors

May 11th, 2012Posted by in Top tips for journalists

Poynter has a list of six ways journalists can clean their copy, commit fewer errors.

1. Assume your copy will be published exactly as you wrote it.
2. Read your copy aloud slowly — and listen carefully — before sending it.
3. Be fair.
4. Stop at every number.
5. Read your email and respond to it.
6. Keep a list and check it twice.

It is worth reading the notes which explain each point.
