  • Once date, time, and location have been finalized, send information about your event to Arts & Letters via our Event MachForm. We will include your event on our LAB TV slideshows, on our event website, on the university calendar; and in the USM Mailout. You can also use this form to request social media graphics, Drupal web slides, posters, or help publicizing the event on your department website.

  • Decide who your realistic target audience is, and let that guide your PR effort. What is most likely to reach the people who would be interested in your event? A radio shout out on WUSM? An article or paid ad in the Student Printz? A press release on Southern Miss Now? The Hardy/49 Marquee? Visit our PR Resources page for tips and contact information.
