    Hi there

    I am wanting to sharpen my Press / Media Release Writing skills and although I can see so many great resources on this site, I’d love the chance to do it face to face.

    Any recommendations on Sydney based training preferrably 1 day.

    thanks
    Mary-Anne

    Hi Mary-Anne,

    We’ll put a shout out on Facebook and Twitter for you and see if we can rustle up some recommendations.

    In the meantime, thanks for joining Flying Solo, and welcome!

    you could always incorporate it into a small business get together- if we all email each other our media releases and then meet up and discuss each of them over coffee or something.

    Hi Mary-Anne, may I suggest some one on one time with Phoebe from Good Business Consulting (http://goodbusiness.net.au/). Phoebe has personally helped me tighten my marketing and PR ways.

    Best of luck

    Hi there,

    The Australian Marketing Institute (AMI) is about to release its 2012 training workshop schedule and one of these is specifically on media release writing. Keep tabs on their website: http://www.ami.org.au/Events/marketing_events_training.asp

    The Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA) also runs a similar workshop: http://www.pria.com.au/development

    Good luck!

    Hi,

    I can highly recommend the course delivered by Catriona Pollard via the Sydney Writers Centre on PR and media releases

    It’s very practical and Catriona gives you great ideas/tips for generating successful media releases and other avenues of securing PR.

    Good luck,

    Leanne

    Hi there,
    I know it’s a bit late, but I just joined today and thought this may still be of interest …
    Im a full-time journalist and freelance copywriter who compile press kits and runs media training workshops as part of Jagged Edge Communications, which I operate as a sole trader.
    The workshops are Sydney based and run on weekends only. Participants learn how to write a media release, distribute an electronic press kit and give an interview. There’s also time for advice and questions.
    More information is available at http://www.jaggededgecommunications.com. See the ‘other services’ tab.
