How to use publicity "services"

Look for news from the press (see Tracking press coverage below) and update press coverage pages.
Find a topic for a DPN entry.
Redact a DPN entry.
Translate draft communications (press releases, DPN editions).
Review draft communications. Verify exactitude, relevance and proper form (language, etc).
Contact people, interview and propose drafts of success stories to be published.
Follow other groups, and ensure those with newsworthy activity are properly covered. Make sure they communicate and do so optimally (going through the publicity group when appropriate).
