Recommended Reading for Writers: After Deadline, From The New York Times

( — Fellow freelancer Gabe Goldberg pointed me to the NYT’s topic blog After Deadline, which caught my interest immediately. In their own words,

After Deadline examines questions of grammar, usage and style encountered by writers and editors of The Times.

It is adapted from a weekly newsroom critique overseen by Philip B. Corbett, the deputy news editor who is also in charge of The Times’s style manual. The goal is not to chastise, but to point out recurring problems and suggest solutions.

Since many writers wrestle with similar troubles, we think these observations might interest general readers, too.

Add After Deadline to your list of weekly reads.
