#Tip: Follow this series on advice for editors

May 3rd, 2013 | No Comments | Posted by in Top tips for journalists

Steve Buttry has started a series and hashtag on advice for editors (or #advice4editors) as a personal addition to his work as digital transformation editor at Digital First Media and Journal Register Co.

Although it is aimed at new editors in DFM newsrooms it is equally applicable to editors elsewhere or pretty much anyone in the field of journalism: breaking habits, the importance of listening and leading by example may be obvious characteristics but having them illustrated in a newsroom context makes them more applicable – and somehow more real.

If you have a tip you would like to submit to us at Journalism.co.uk email us using this link.

‘They provide the key for the map’: In defence of editors everywhere

First, we heard about the death of the sub-editor. The sub-editor, they said, is expendable. Next, from Johnston Press, came the death of the editor. Don’t bother reading what you publish, JP told editors.

Apparently, editing has fallen so far out of favour that a piece on the Atlantic’s website by Alexis Madrigal is entitled “Why editing could make a comeback.”

But the piece, along with a recent essay by Paul Ford which it cites, speaks out for the value of editors everywhere, “those whose names do not appear underneath the headline”.

Here’s my analogy. We take good roads for granted in the US; our highway system just works, so you start to think of it almost as geology, almost immutable and close to eternal. But if you take a drive on the backroads of the Yucatan, the forest encroaches, large potholes appear out of nowhere, and the signage is indecipherable, regardless of your level of Spanish.

The Internet can feel like a jungle, and journalists are in the business of providing paths through the territory. Writers might blaze the trails, but editors maintain the roads. The vines are creeping and the potholes are growing. And maybe letting the road deteriorate is really the only way to make audiences and media companies realize the value of those whose names do not appear underneath the headline.
