According to media veteran and instructor Sandra Gehring; “Contrary to contemporary thinking, getting publicity is not a battle but rather an intelligent partnership. During this two evening class I will help you ‘decipher the code’ about how any professional or business person can get positive press coverage.” Gehring adds; “To make the class meaningful and meaty every attendee will be receiving press release templates, easy-to-use formats for writing media alerts, sample news announcements and check lists for interview preparation.”
Participants will learn how to write their own press releases, media alerts, and story pitches as an integral part of this participative and experiential class. Attendees will practice verbally pitching stories and then will be “interviewed”
“The Banner Center for Creative Industries is working with subject matter experts to ensure that the trainees are getting the very best knowledge that they can use immediately out in the workforce,” said Philip Green, State Director for the Banner Center for Creative Industries. “We are fortunate to be working with Sandi Gehring and this is a great opportunity to learn from a true professional.”
