Making Media Connections: Writing a Press Release (2009)

In this brief document, the authors explain how to write a press release that will catch the attention of an editor. They begin by pointing out that while an organization’s work may be very important, a press release must focus on something that will be of interest to the general public now.

The authors offer tips for organizing the information; avoiding generalities and jargon; and making sure the press release answers an editor’s questions.

They also provide a template for writing a short, powerful press release.
