Hello, writers (on the several lists to which Iâm cross-posting this question),

Iâll be talking to someone about part-time content writing, and one of their needs is âturn outlines into prose for publishing to the press.â Iâve never written press releases before, and wonder if there are any specific legal things I should beware of before jumping in to the assignment (assuming the opportunity pans out, that is)?

And if you have any books/white papers/websites to recommend for info about writing press releases, that would be very welcome!
