Coming soon!

What goes into a press release and an Electronic Press Kit? How do you create one? What do you do with them? How do you get press to notice your project? These topics will be tackled at Pete's 3-hour, interactive, idea-generating workshop.

Together we will toss around creative ideas, make old ideas fresh and new, and use pre-existing press releases, EPK’s, and websites for inspiration while discovering effective ways to package your show/product into a sleek, handy dandy press release and EPK.
