We’re asking for your awesome writing for the PRSSA newsletter!
Don’t know what to write?
The articles can be on a range of topics, from “5 Things Not To do During an Interview,” to “How to Survive in Entertainment PR.” It can also be as creative as “5 Things Chocolate and the PR Industry Have in Common." I like going to websites like PRDaily.com and Ragan.com for inspiration and ideas. If you had an internship over the summer, perhaps what you learned at your internship, like 7 PR tips when you are working/interning, etc. If you have some ideas, let me know!

Word Count: 300- 400
