Want to get more media coverage for your creative organisation?

Tailored specifically to artists, performers, musicians and creatives, this 2-hour workshop will teach participants:

  • the key news values that make journalists sit up and take notice
  • how to make those news values work for you
  • how to craft compelling key messages
  • how to bring everything together in a strong media release; and
  • a few extra tips for giving your news the best possible chance of being picked up by your target media.

By the end of this workshop you will walk away with a really strong draft media release - or maybe even a final version - that you can use to gain media coverage; as well as the confidence to use the same strategy time and time again.
