The Press Club of Southeast Texas will be presenting a workshop on how to write a press release.
The workshop, on Monday, February 27, 2023, at Lamar University, is to be the first in a monthly series for 2023.
Press club president Andy Coughlan, who is director of Lamar University's Student Publications, will be leading the workshop.
The workshop will be held on February 27, 2023, on the Lamar campus in room 127 in the communication building from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The workshop is free and open to anyone. If part of your job at work or as part of a non-profit or other organization includes sending out press releases to the news media then this workshop is for you.
During the workshop you'll learn how to write a concise press release with all the appropriate information.
Coughlan will also talk about what to include when you email your release to the news media to help better the chances that your event or story will get covered.
You'll also hear pointers from Southeast Texas media professionals with more than 30 years of journalism experience.
