Working on the “how tos” of Media Interactions

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Well into the New Year, and now that I am recovering from my elevation to the Order of the Laurel, I am working on drafting instructions for local branches to use when planning demos. When inviting the media (either directly or by placing a press release in your local community calendar) please drop me a line so I can help you word-smith your materials and assist you in walking reporters/photographers through your demo.

On the beat

Greetings! I’ve been on the job just over a month now, and — despite the Yuletide season — making progress towards my goal of getting useful information into the hands of branch officers (Seneschals and Chatelaines primarily) who need it. This blog is a big part of my plans, and I am most grateful to Kingdom Webminster,┬áBaronessa Chiara Francesca Arianna d’Onofrio, for helping set it up.

Some of the things you can expect to find here in the near future are sample press releases, copies of SCA Corporate policies and — eventually — our own Kingdom policies and “best practices” manual for handling media contacts like a pro.

I am also working with my “deputy-deputy,” Don Andrew Williams, on a plan to develop a library of stock photos of events around our mighty Kingdom. There is already a fine album of photos on the SCA corporate site, but we have many talented photographers whose work I greatly admire.

I am proud to serve our great Kingdom, and look forward to serving you.
