Journalistic Resources. By Annette Stevens.

With the rise of technology, and with more people using tablets and Kindles, Books are gradually becoming forgotten. Here, I look at the best books you should be reading, as a journalist:

Stories and Biography’s:

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath:
This is the fictional biography of Plath, who was a guest editor at Mademoiselle magazine. The novel charters her descent into madness, when society expected so much of women. Yet she lost her battle to suicide. A heavy read, but gives valuable advice for wannabe hacks.
Brain on fire: My month of madness. By Susannah Cullen:
Again, this book charters a descent into madness, but this is from a disease of the brain. Reporter Cullen finds herself  in a darker plight than anyone could imagine. This teaches us to make use of everything given to us, and to live everyday as if its your last.

Resourceful:

 The Writers And Artists Yearbook:
 Every year a new edition of this is published,and is a wide resource. It has Writers advice, Comission information, competitions, and magazine addresses. For only a few pounds every year, you will have access to so much Journalism knowledge.

Film Adaptations:

The Devil wears Prada:
 Is a film looking into the life of the assistant to the Editor ( but is largely inaccurate). For lots of laughs watch the film…!
