How to quote sources

The video below explains how to handle quotes in stories, including selecting which quotes to use, punctuating quotes and properly attributing them. The 30-minute tutorial is the newest Journalism 101 lesson I've created for's education page. There are also some interactive exercises to practice your skills.

Please share it with your classmates, coworkers, professors and editors. Additionally, public relations practitioners can apply the lessons from the quotations tutorial when writing press releases.
