PIA Press Release
2009/02/11

Lanao Norte employees learn journ skills

Cagayan de Oro City (11 February) -- IMMARLOU Paclipan was not a born writer by any stretch of the imagination. She even had a hard time on what linking verb to use when writing office communications.

But after finishing the Technical and Press Release Writing course last February 6 and 7 at Chali Beach Resort, Cagayan de Oro City, she now even knows effective press release writing and technical reports preparation.

"This activity is an eye-opener for me. I realized that I can also be a competent writer despite being an accountancy graduate", Paclipan said.

In an interview, Lyndon Calica, Provincial Information Officer of the province of Lanao del Norte, said, "From the seminar participants, five will be chosen to compose the core group of news writers who will complement the news gathering and news writing functions of the Provincial Information Office."

Tapped to conduct the seminar was the Development Center for Asia Africa Pacific (DCAAP), a University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman-based international training and consulting organization, with Professor Danilo Arao, former Chair of the UP Department of Journalism and currently an Assistant Professor of the UP-Diliman College of Mass Communication as resource-person of the seminar-workshop.

"After the two-day course, I was quite impressed with the improvement the participants showed especially on their grammar, sentence construction and writing ability", Arao said. (VNL/PIO-Lanao del Norte) [top]
