PR Writing - Examples

On this page you will find links to just about every topic we covered on Tuesday. Most of these links will drill down to more information, including some stuff we haven't covered yet.

As you can tell, this is a dynamic website -- it's a current, sometimes daily communication channel, with a bundle of related but separate threads -- it's not a textbook-type static manual. As you browse these pages, let me know if you happen upon the inevitable glitch, an occupational hazard with any dynamic communications.

Here are other pages that may be of interest to you:

  • Lecture Notes - Week 2

      It might be useful for you to have a look at my lecture notes from Week 2 (Tuesday, 9/10/14).
  • What do editors consider newsworthy?

      A recap of the qualities that editors say make for a news story, as opposed to a puff piece not worthy of genuine journalism.
  • Digital version of a Message Planner

      This, not the hand-written worksheet I distributed in class, is the typical format you'll use for assignments. This, plus the press release beginning on a separate page, should all be included in the same MS Word document.
