The Radical Write
For two decades, countless high school students have learned the art of journalistic writing from The Radical Write, the popular textbook written by Bobby Hawthorne. In 2011, Hawthorne teamed with Jostens to publish a new, third edition of the book with updated copy and a new design.
A humorous, no-holds barred examination of the content found in student publications, this best-selling text suggests alternatives to the content clichés that dominate high school journalism. Both newspaper and yearbook writing are covered, and students literally learn by reading the word of others. The hardbound 220-page text features 14 chapters.
A website for teachers featuring exercises, activities and supplemental materials is now available at radicalwrite.com.
The Radical Write [item #2087] sells for $40 and is available for purchase by schools working with any yearbook company. To order, call 1.800.972.5628 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
