Ever wonder how to get your business or your nonprofit event into the daily paper, onto a local website or somewhere within, say, a blog such as the one you’re reading right now? Ever faced the pressure of writing a press release?

There’s hope.

The City of Gig Harbor’s Arts Commission will host a workshop, “Making Friends with the Media,” on Wednesday, March 27, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Gig Harbor Civic Center, 3510 Grandview Street in Gig Harbor.

The free workshop is open to the public.

Local non-profit organizations, small businesses and anyone who desires to learn how to use media for promotion is invited. A panel of local media and marketing professionals will include several media representatives – including The News Tribune’s own arts writer, Rosemary Ponnekanti; plus reporter Brett Davis of The Peninsula Gateway.

The News Tribune now uses Facebook commenting on selected blogs. See editor's column for more details. Commenters are expected to abide by terms of service for Facebook as well as commenting rules for Report violators to
