How to write a press release

A press release informs the media of news that you would like to be published, such as an interview, a feature story, book launch, a radio broadcast, a new service, workshop or course.

Keep the headline brief and informative.
Write the information factually and with minimum embellishments. Avoid hyperbole and tautology. Keep sentences short and punchy.
Write the press release in a way where the editor can copy and paste into their publication without the need to edit.

Answer the 6 questions: Who? What? Where? How? When? Why?

Add your contact details for more information.
