Occupy Supply Skill Share: How to Write A Press Release

Our Next Occupy Supply Skill Share is on Wednesday May 30th at 8pm EST

Our presentation this week is How To Write A Press Release featuring Christina Siun O’Connell, FDL Press Secretary. Press releases and media advisories are imperative in media outreach and drawing attention to your actions. Many Occupations have missed opportunities to have local media cover their activities by not using this tool effectively. Tonight we will go through the logistics of writing a press release and developing media relationships.

Christina Siun O’Connell will join us and go over the elements of a Press Release and what people in the media are looking for when receiving one. She has a wealth of experience in the world of media and in the Occupy movement and will speak to specifically what Occupy Media groups need to do get local Media outlets to show up for your events and actions.

This meeting is open to anyone – liason, occupier or otherwise – who wants to join this discussion and share skills, experiences and questions related to media outreach.
