"Get me Rewrite!"

As a journalist, I learned to write and edit to demanding deadlines. I see quickly and clearly what needs to be done to communicate better. I'm also observant and a sensitive listener, helping me perceive how to serve others' goals.

 

Behind the name

From Get Me Rewrite! by Richard Pérez-Peña (The New York Times, 18 December, 2015):

"There’s a long tradition in newspapers that involves someone at a desk, taking information from reporters in the field, and shaping it, at the home office, into an article. That’s what rewrite is, and that’s a big part of what I do.

"In the old days, rewrite was a crucial function, but then, when laptops entered the picture and made it possible to write from anywhere, rewrite waned. Now, with round-the-clock publishing and the competitive pressures of the Internet, rewrite is crucial again..."
