Writing and Editing

The Heart of the Sentence

Copy Editing

At some newspapers, they call them copy editors; at others, sub-editors or "subs." At small operations, the chief editor often has to do everything: assign stories, edit the copy, write the headlines, choose and crop the photos, write the captions, lay out the pages (and perhaps eat lunch!).
