Presenter: Russell Wangersky

Russell Wangersky, writer, editor and TC Media's Atlantic regional columnist, shares his insider knowledge of the "nasty, brutish and quick" realities of editing at a newspaper/digital news operation. News editors face sheer volume—up to 64,000 words daily—while reading for style and fact checking. And this work does not cycle back and forth between editors and writers—editors simply make changes, going back to reporters only to check details; there isn't time for much else. "If editing is a hospital for the written word," Wangersky says, "newspaper editing is a front-line emergency clinic."
