    "Writing has never been one of my strongest attributes. So you can image how I felt when I discovered I needed to write a press release for a product launch for work. I was terrified so I started to search for resources on how to properly write a press release. I discovered a course on Udemy for Powerful Press Releases: Get your name & story in the media. The course received positive reviews and the instructor had over 30 years of experience. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out the course was only $10 at the moment. This course was a lifesaver."

    "Personally if I'm writing something I'd rather have a written tutorial so it's easier to fill in the blanks and change wording as I go along, but if you want the more robust "why's" to go along with your hows, this is a good option. They go through the steps in detail and the comment section is also useful if you still have questions."

    "I thought it was pretty informative (covered all the basics) even though the woman speaking was quite annoying. However, I feel as though the method she takes in writing a press release is only one way to do it... And a kind of shady method at that. So I would appreciate variety."

    "A rather vague link to business wire without any further information on actually writing a press release. It is more a service of posting a press release and not really writing at press release."
