How to do a Press Release? was created by Andrea
Never having done one, I really haven't a clue as to where to begin... long story short, our goat club is hosting a Field Day next month (posting in Your Place), with a speaker from MPI on the Goat Code of Welfare, and a speaker from AgResearch talking about goat husbandry. Would like to reach as much of the public as we can - we are a non-profit group and not a lot of $$ to spend on publicity, so was hoping a press release would be the way to go on this. Any ideas or advice? Is this even a feasible way to go?

Thanks!

There are a couple of websites that post all press releases they are sent. Have a look before you write it as it'll give you an idea of the typical format. Once written, you can submit them and they'll be online (you could send a copy to relevant press outlets, local community newspapers, and websites also - anyone you think would be interested).

The press release websites are:
www.scoop.co.nz
www.voxy.co.nz

Email me if you have any questions, want help, or want me to proof read your release. I've read a gazillion (and written a few) in my time.
