Back for the 8th time by popular demand! What goes into a press release...and an Electronic Press Kit? How do you get press to notice your work? How do you create a press release and an EPK? What do you do with it? 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.
