Editing for Editors - Radio Boot Camp

The role of an editor is a tricky balance, helping shape a story that ultimately belongs to someone else. It is a job that requires both story skills and people skills, knowing both how to structure a story and how to guide a reporter.

In this class, we will work through both sides of the editor equation. We’ll talk in-depth about the elements of a good story, common mistakes reporters make in reporting and crafting stories, and practical tools for fixing those mistakes. And we’ll dive into the human side of editing, tips and tools for assessing the individual needs of your reporters, and how to best support and motivate them.

The class will be very practical, using examples from instructor Karen Duffin’s experience helping edit stories at Planet Money and This American Life, along with series like Wild Boys. We will also leave time to talk through any editing dilemmas you’re currently facing
