What is Word Stack?
Deconstructing the work of good journalists
Word Stack is here to celebrate great writing. It will explore how the best writers, bloggers, and journalists in the world construct high quality prose. Why is their work good? What can we learn about the author and the topic beyond what is on the page? How can we use their techniques in our own writing? Deconstructing good journalism will make you a better writer, and I am here to do that with you.
This newsletter is about celebration, not criticism. I’m not a professional. I have not received special training in journalism, rhetoric, or writing. I am not in the position to critique the work of others who are more experienced than myself. Don’t come here for takedowns and fact-checks on bad articles or commentary about media-drama. If you are looking for that content, I would recommend checking this site.
Writing about an article is also not necessarily an endorsement of the author’s views. While I do not intend to review work based covering view points that I find reprehensible, the fact that I have examined an article does not mean I agree with all of the conclusions.
Right now, I am hoping to publish once every couple of weeks. All posts will be free. Please support my work by sharing it!
If there are articles or authors you would like me to cover, please reach out! I prefer current work, but I am willing to try older stuff if there is interest.
