Write a Better Press Release | March 11, 2020

Good publicity makes all the difference. No one learns about a great product or service without it. Well-written and well-placed information attracts notice, and that means customers and clients. In this workshop, you will learn the basic format of a news release, and what to include and what to leave out to give your release the best chance of being printed or broadcast. Bring some information you’d like to publicize. We’ll review samples and you can try your hand at writing one yourself.  

Presented by Stephanie Harp, HarpWorks Writing Services
