Presentation by Ted Moon

From communication plans and press releases to web copy and blogs, a public relations executive spends hours writing. Whether you are new or just need a refresher on public relations writing, sharpen your pencil and join PRSA Houston for Write the Right Way: A PR Writing Workshop. Our experts Julie Fix, APR, Fellow PRSA and Instructional Assistant Professor at the University of Houston, and Ted Moon, Ph.D., Principal and Founder of LaunchPad Writing + Research, will share their insights on public relations writing and provide tips for blending storytelling and strategy.
