Additional Book Details

How best to turn yourself from sports fan to professional sports journalist? Quickly moving beyond general guidance about sports writing, Joe Gisondi focuses on the nitty-gritty, with hands-on, practical advice on covering 20 specific sports. From auto racing to wrestling, you’ll find tips on the seemingly straightforward—where to stand on the sideline and how to identify a key player—along with the more specialized—figuring out shot selection in lacrosse and understanding a coxswain’s call for a harder stroke in rowing. The new edition adds a new section on sports reporting across multimedia platforms with new chapters on social media, mobile media, visual storytelling, writing for television, and writing for radio, along with a new chapter on sabermetrics.  Fully revised with new examples and updated information to prepare you for just about any game, match, meet, race, regatta or tournament you’re likely to cover, Field Guide to Covering Sports, Second Edition is the ideal go-to resource to have on hand as you master the beat.
