If you appreciate guidance and tips that can help strengthen and improve your writing, check out the New York Times editor’s blog. Titled “After Deadline: Newsroom Notes on Usage and Style,” this blog covers issues that writers and editors of the newspaper have encountered.

Here you’ll find information on topics such as how to keep slang and colloquialisms from becoming trite or hackneyed (“The Slang Patrol”), where to place modifying phrases to avoid confusion and clunkiness (“Phrases Gone Astray”), and how to recognize misplaced commas (“Tricky Little Things”).

The topics come from the newspaper’s weekly newsroom critique. The blog, which is updated frequently, is written by Philip B. Corbett, the associate managing editor for standards and the keeper of The Times’s style manual.
Check it out and take advantage of a unique opportunity to learn from some of the best writers in the industry.
