Event Details

DIY press release: raising your charity’s media profile

               Garden room at Greencoat Place

Through a series of practical exercises this workshop provides an introduction to media-focused PR for charities and community groups. The main aim of this workshop is to help charities maximise the impact of their press releases.

You will learn:

  • How the media works
  • What makes a good story
  • How to create powerful press releases that maximise your chances of being noticed by journalists
  • Practical ideas for getting free publicity for your cause

This is an interactive half day group clinic, so we ask that participants bring along a press release that we can develop together as part of the session.
