Add "writing press releases" to my resume and list of part-time jobs, or at least sporadic part-time work. I've started writing press releases for Moving Arts Dance, a nonprofit dance school and dance company in Concord. So far I'm writing calendar listings, but will soon write an actual press release about an upcoming event. It's interesting to be on the other side and have to try to sell an event. I think I'm well qualified by working at newspapers and know what the press needs. With this start, I hope it will lead to doing public relations for other organizations and allow me to continue expanding my job skills.
