Overview

Using skill building exercises framed around rhetorical and communication theory, Public Relations Writing: A Rhetorical Approach prepares students to be critical and thoughtful producers of organizational and public messages in a rapidly transforming field.

The practice of public relations has become increasingly complex. Students need more than "technical skills" to succeed; they need critical thinking, rhetorical and communication skills to adapt to sophisticated technological and diverse environments. This text shows students that successful communication through any platform, from blogs to brochures, requires compelling prose and the ability to use language effectively.

Incorporating chapters that focus both on ideas and communication principles, as well as practical knowledge of an assortment of writing contexts, Public Relations Writing: A Rhetorical Approach prepares students for the dynamic field of public relations.
