Public Relations Writing: Lesson #13 - p. 6

This is a good time to catch up with your assignments

    I'm not making any new writing assignments in this lesson. And now that you've come to understand the requirements of the Message Planner, you should take a fresh look at each of the press releases you've been assigned to date, including your midterm.

    Please be sure to name your rewrites correctly. This is where a "little mistake" can cause big problems. Your first rewrite for "Evita", for example, should be named prw-yourname-evita-2.doc... be sure to put the hyphen in there -- the last part of the filename should not be "evita2.doc" -- and use hyphens (not dots or spaces) between the elements. Your next rewrite (if any) would be prw-yourname-evita-3.doc

    When I edit each press release assignment, I don't usually take the time to repeat a discussion of the problems I've already told you about in these Web pages... I assume you're reading carefully, and all I need to do is identify the problem without detailed comment -- you will know what the problem is.

    If you are confused about any editing marks, use email to get in touch and raise the question.

    Your only writing assignment from this lesson (in addition to another chapter of reading in the text) is to do whatever new draft of your previous assignments that you want me to take another look at.
