I came across this article titled “Tips, Guidelines and Templates for Writing an Effective Press Release” on PRWeb Direct.  The article gives tips on press release formatting, shows a template of a press release, and gives examples of common press release errors.

Below you can see the template of a press release from PRWeb Direct:

    I bet this is coming in handy for your Writing class. I took mine over the summer last year and it seemed like everyone was confused on how to style it and what all the write in it. It seems like all through college we are programed to write these long papers where we learn to “fluff” in order to hit the page limit. When getting into actual PR work we have to forget about all the fluff and just tell the information. If we make the press releases to long then there is a big chance they won’t be read. This template helps people figure out what to write and how to write it.
