Here are some standard tips to writing effective press releases for publication. Some publications have formatting requirements for contact information and such, we aren't too worried about that here at LCN.

Possibly the most important part of writing a press release is to have a point, use it in the title and get to it quickly.

You should have some timely information you want to impart, something newsworthy. Rambling, first-person narratives or self-congratulatory expressions are fine but they are far less likely to be published.
