"Here's how you can write the news and get your story across. The technique also works well for writing press releases. News writings has its own structure. Before digital printing and desktop publishing, news was laid out manually. If a late breaking story came in and the editor needed to make room, then the editor would order another story to be cut.
The book as a whole is intended to provide sufficient examples and explanations to enable practitioners and professional educators to try our for themselves an innovatory approach to professional development, using what we take to be the widespread (but curiously ignored) human capacity for understanding experience through imaginative representation or real happening as news."
