Sports journalism is in a league of its own, a place where allowing the passion (and pain) of the fans to feed into the story is arguably as important as the reporting itself.
This post by Grace Belllo pulls together tips and advice from some of New York’s finest sports journalists, including writers from the New York Times, Sports Illustrated and FiveThirtyEight.
They include being savvy about curation, making the most of user-generated content and – an important one for young reporters – taking note of how your original copy has been edited, to help you improve your writing in future.
