Summer Session 1 – PR Writing 101: Top Tips for Great Writing

Date / Time: July 20, 18:00 – 20:15

Do you struggle with passive voice in your documents? Are you still unsure of all of those AP rules about numbers usage? What about “affect” vs. “effect” or (gulp) “lay” vs. “lie”? Join us for an interactive “back to school” session that covers the fundamentals of great writing, including audience and voice, AP style, grammar and punctuation, and more.

Summer Session 2 – PR Writing 201: Writing, Editing, and Proofreading

Date / Time: Aug. 17, 18:00 – 20:15 

This two-part workshop will get you on the fast path to tight, focused PR documents. Learn how to write news releases, case studies, biographies, pitches, and more. You’ll walk away with a complete set of templates and samples to jumpstart your next writing project. In the second half, we’ll also discuss a full set of tips on editing and proofreading to ensure your writing shines.

The Publicity Club’s Michael Dowding, who has taught PR and communications writing at BU for more than 20 years, will be your summer-school instructor.
