I want to contact my local press about my event

If you write a press release about your event, the best approach is to explain what you are doing while keeping it clear, simple and concise.

A few golden rules:

  • Try to tell your story concisely, if possible in the first paragraph or introduction.
  • Answer all important questions – why, who, what, when, where and how.
  • Keep it short! Try to aim for 20-30 words per paragraph and do not use more than 2 pages.
  • Write in third person
  • Include quotes from one or two of the people involved
  • Get the details of everyone involved including full name, age and area people are from.
  • Include your own contact details
