For this assignment, we were asked to put together a newsletter for a Fortune 500 company. My company was Southwest Airlines. This was difficult for me because, well as we all know, the Adobe Suite is obviously just not my thing.

For this week’s assignments in PR Publications we were challenged to further develop our Fortune 500 Company’s newsletter and prepare it for publishing.

This week we were asked to finish our newsletter and turn in our final draft. And, I must say, it was a challenge. What I found most challenging about the final stages of drafting was finding a layout for the story that had a jump onto another page.
