About the Workshop

  • Different types of PR activity
  • How to communicate your work in ways that are comfortable to you, relevant to your potential audiences, and show off your work to its best advantage
  • How to be PR-ready, with information, images and other material for media.

The session will include discussions, examples, exercises and Q & A opportunities, and be relevant whether you are doing your own PR, or working with a publicist.
