After the Fact: A Guide to Fact-Checking for Magazines and Other Media

ByCynthia Brouse

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Put your research skills to work as a fact-checker — or, if you're an editor, publisher or writer, make sure your readers never find a factual error in your publication. In <i>After the Fact</i>, Cynthia Brouse explains why magazines use fact-checkers when other media don't; how to put a fact-checking system in place; and how to go about checking the facts in an article. Fact-checking is a key entry-level or freelance position in the magazine business, a way for aspiring writers or editors to learn how a magazine works and how professional writers put together a story, and to develop relationships with editors that can lead to assignments or jobs. And the more writers know about what happens to their articles when they are fact-checked, the more prepared they’ll be to provide what editors want — and to protect their copy. These skills can be adapted to any medium. <i>After the Fact</i> is the textbook for the author's courses in the School of Journalism at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
