ELAN is pleased to bring back a very popular hands-on workshop presented by CBC Montreal’s Debbie Hynes, Manager of Communications, Marketing & Brand.

Getting Media Attention is targeted to artists who struggle with the daunting task of writing their own press releases and pitching them to the media and/or arts publicists. This workshop will provide practical hands-on advice on pitching ideas, standing out from the flood of press releases vying for attention, and shaping your story so that it captures the imagination of producers and the audiences they serve.

This fact-filled workshop is FREE for ELAN members but spots are VERY limited. To apply, send us a paragraph telling us how you could benefit from participating: admin@quebec-elan.org.

Sunday, February 4, 1:00pm – 3:30pm
