“‘A NewsHound’s Guide to Student Journalism” is an excellent resource. If I were teaching high school journalism, all my students would know it.” – Roy Peter Clark, “America’s writing coach” and author of “Writing Tools,” “How to Write Short,” “Murder Your Darlings,” and more.

“The book is in many ways a pedagogical masterpiece. The use of not only stories, but creative comics with believable, diverse characters in realistic situations makes the learning experience considerably more engaging. I would recommend that a copy be sent to every middle school, high school, college, and university in the United States.”
