Coffee Talk Topic: PR writing. Talk amongst yourselves.

In CPRS, public relations on February 13, 2012 at 3:50 pm

To the managers and supervisors out there: do you think PR writing has improved or declined over the years? This is the question we set out to answer in a study released in late 2011 in the Journal of Professional Communication. We found that not only is entry-level PR writing on the decline, supervisors are lowering their expectations when it comes to writing. The Feb. 2012 issue of Tactics is all about public relations writing, leading me to believe this is a good time for a discussion. How are you dealing with this issue? Is it an issue for you? If you have tips to share or are interested in talking about our study, please email me at jberry@mtroyal.ca. If there is enough interest, I would be happy to pull together a little symposium on the matter.
