Press Releases are important. They need to be written in a way that mirrors a typical “News” story answering the questions Who? What? When? Where? How? and Why? The release should have a strong, compelling first sentence (lede sentence) of under 30 words. It should inlcude some quotes from a principle of the story. A good press release should be no longer than 600 words. (2 pages double spaced). And, it should include a digital photo.
Why write a press release? Many news blogs, especially those that care about local or regional news and operate outside of the corrupt mainstream news media — it is corrupt, do not have the staff to cover secondary level news events and stories. So, when you write a good press release you are helping the news site. They can take your release and publish it with the photo.
That helps you promote your event, your issue, your concern and your news.
