Editors Only February 2009 Issue Now Available

Announcing the release of the February 2009 issue of Editors Only, a monthly newsletter for editors that shares valuable insider tips from prominent editors in the industry.

New Britain, CT, February 22, 2009 --(PR.com)-- In the February 2009 issue of the Editors Only newsletter, Peter Jacobi suggests that writers adhere to a nine-step program in order to produce clearer, more organized writing. The article also contains writing tips from such esteemed writers as E.B. White, Toni Morrison, and Tennessee Williams. Here is a brief summary of his program:

1. Writers must tackle subjects in a manner that is simultaneously factual and eye-catching. Jacobi cautions writers to avoid the mundane and break new ground, and also offers some timely examples of both good and bad article topics.

2. Differentiate between the necessary and unnecessary factoids.

3. Zero in on your target audience.

4. Fine-tune your approach to maintain reader interest and deliver your information clearly.

5. Design/organize your article with your subject matter in mind. Different types of pieces (e.g., essays, theses, etc.) will demand different "architecture".

6. Discover how to find your voice and use it.

7. Determine which examples best illustrate your central focus.

8. Tell a story.

9. Employ sensory language to "paint a picture," even in expository writing.

In addition to Peter Jacobi's nine-step program, the February 2009 issue of Editors Only helps editors to keep "non-words" out of their publications by discussing five words that don't exist, provides tips on how to hire an online editor for your publication, and shares four ways that editors can reach their readers in the blogosphere.
