This up-to-date text teaches students how to write, produce and distribute a variety of public relations materials, from news releases and public service announcements to brochures, newsletters, slide presentations and video news releases. While remaining true to the book's original purpose, the second edition forges ahead with coverage of recent advances in technology and changes in the law that have a direct bearing on significant public relations issues. Written for easy reading and comprehension, the text features pedagogy to support its "nuts and bolts" approach.

Praise for Wilcox's Public Relations Writing and Media Techniques
“The presentation of the information is superior to other textbooks I have used or considered using, largely because the writing is simple and to the point, and the information is appropriate and immediately applicable.”
Douglas P. Starr, Texas A&M University

“I would tell other faculty that the Wilcox text is comprehensive, easy to read, full of good examples and exercises and an overall excellent writing text for students of public relations.”
Shelly A. Wright, SUNY New Paltz

“ The text's boxed 'professional tips' sections can prove tremendously helpful to students after graduation. I strongly encourage my students to keep this text so they can use it as a reference guide for germinating creative ideas and resolving problems on the job.”
Lora J. DeFore, Mississippi State University

“Some of the best content is included in the boxed items such as 'Professional Tips' and 'PR Casebook.' In reading the book for the first time, I was fascinated to learn there was so much information included in these sections.”
Donn Silvis, California State University Dominguez Hills

“I would describe this as a text that takes a student with only basic journalistic writing skills and introduces him/her, through scholarly discussion and hands-on examples, to the more important areas of the ever expanding public relations writing field.”
Michael E. Bishop, Baylor University
