Press Releases

The main purpose of a press release is to bring attention to something specific and significant through various media outlets. A strong press release is clear, concise, and provides the most important details. Otherwise, writers/editors may become overwhelmed, or simply not have time to consider it for publishing. A press release is a document that adheres to a strict format and serves a few main purposes. Those purposes being, to notify the media and the public about an event or storyline, in turn, they will spread the word and perhaps attend the event, or follow up for an interview. 

Writing a press release can be difficult and intimidating if you have never done it before. Jelly Academy provides the skills and confidence to write a well-written release.
