Yesterday I completed the mini public relations course I mentioned in the two previous posts. This third section focused on media relations, and a number of points will be useful for the journalism course in the fall.
I may use this material for a couple of smaller writing assignments during the semester, one of which could be writing press releases for various events that could take place in seminary, a parish or a diocese. The course also has a good section on compiling a list of all of the media outlets in a given area - another good step for those working in a parish to take.
Lastly, the course gave a list of other public relations resources that may appear in the new section for public relations that I've added to the right.
