What you'll learn in this public relations course:

Producer, publicist and writer Kambri Crews gave this workshop at the West Virginia Writer's Conference and the feedback was phenomenal, so she's bringing it to us.

You're a performer, writer, artist, business owner, musician, athlete, you name it and you want to be noticed for how awesome you (and/or your work) are?

You must toot your own horn loudly and often. 

This 1.5 hour workshop taught by publicist and producer Kambri Crews will give dozens of very practical, easy to follow tips and ideas ranging from how to write a press release, who to contact at media outlets and how to build a "platform". You'll also receive various samples of press releases & "pitch" letters Kambri has used to promote her personal appearances, her memoir and clients. You'll talk about pitching the media, using social media, keeping track of your contacts and so much more. 

We'll have 30 minutes afterward to as mix and mingle and ask more questions offline if that's your thing.
School Notes: OUTSIDE FOOD & DRINKS ARE NOT ALLOWED. QED has coffee, tea, soda, beer & wine plus snacks and pre-made wraps and sandwiches available.

Refund Policy
We require at least seven (7) days' notice before a class in order to issue a refund and there are no transfers to future classes allowed. We're a small operation and purchase our own supplies and keep classes extremely affordable, so we have to operate this way just to stay in business.

But, all is not lost, tickets are transferable meaning we will allow anyone to take your place in class, so check around with your friends to see if someone else would like your spot.

In case of bad weather, classes WILL always take place unless the subway system is closed down. If you have issues traveling, please keep this in mind when you purchase your ticket. If we do cancel for weather or an emergency, we will try to reschedule the class on the same day of the week at the same scheduled time as soon as possible. If you cannot make the rescheduled date, we will refund you the price of your seat.

Kambri is an excellent resource with a lot of useful information. She's definitely a hustler and that was the main takeaway from this class - tips on how to make yourself stand out and essentially "sell yourself." I love that she provides you with a link to some google docs with all of the class information as well as samples of PR letters, etc. My only wish is that there was more information on concrete things to do to use social media to build your brand. QED has a lot of followers, and she tells you what to do to get those followers to become loyal/subscribe to your site, but not how to build the platform from the ground up when you have few contacts to work with. From the description I thought there would be more information on this but it was breezed over rather quickly.

School: Q.E.D.


We like to think of Q.E.D. as an after-school space for grown-ups. All the fun stuff you did as a kid but with beer & wine and like-minded folks.

Our affordable classes and shows are as diverse as Queens itself. At Q.E.D. you’ll find arts and crafts, stand-up comedy, tastings, DIY projects, poetry...
