This is the actual press release I just sent out to area newspapers, magazines and professional organizations. I took out the url for my photos so people don’t sneak in and put mustaches on my horse sculptures.
I just thought of putting “tags” in the lead, as a way of letting various publications know why I targeted them. For example, I sent one to the New Hampshire edition of The Boston Globe, so their tag would be “New Hampshire”. For our local newspaper, “Keene”. For my professional groups, “artist”. Clever, huh? Hope it works….!
