Deities & Deadlines

Deities & DeadlinesDeities & Deadlines, second edition, gives beginning religion writers the benefits of author John Dart's decades of experience covering religion news for the Los Angeles Times. From reference books to newsletters to national organizations, Dart suggests sources for news stories and background information. He guides religion-news newcomers past common pitfalls, noting, for instance, that "it's 'Reform' Judaism, not 'Reformed' Judaism" and explaining the difference between "spirituality" and "spiritualism." He discusses possible conflict-of-interest issues and reassures new writers that newsroom colleagues will eventually quit calling them "Reverend."

Wisdom, wit—and a wealth of phone numbers—make Deities & Deadlines an invaluable sourcebook for all newcomers to religion reporting.
