I’ve learned many things about public relations through my college career. How to write a press release, media prepping, crisis communication, researching and customizing your message for your audience. All of which are import skills to have as a PR professional, but to me, the common thing for all of these skills is the ability to tell a story.
This week’s assignment was to:
- Get to know the video camera we’d be working with
- Record our partner answering personal questions
So I ask myself… what makes a good story?
Well, first it’s got to have a plot.
- a plot is all the events that make up your story. It always has a beginning a middle and an end.
Then you start to structure your story in a way that’s going to entice your reader.

but for all my loyal readers: here’s a little sneak peek.
