PR professionals have been married to the traditional news release format since Ivy Lee created the release more than 100 years ago. Why, then, do we need a new approach?
With 2,500 releases going out each day — that’s one every 35 seconds — the impact of your traditional news release ain’t what it used to be. In fact, fewer than 50% of all traditional news releases ever get covered, according to PR Newswire’s own research.
But at NOT Your Father's News Release — our two-day PR-writing workshop in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 17-18 — you’ll learn to get the word out with current best practices from the Public Relations Society of America’s “national writing coach.”
Learn to think like a reporter, write killer bites, and find out what goes into an effective release — from headline to boilerplate.
