What is Club Clips? It's information regarding the activities of your club. It's a press release, which should include the Five Ws and One H.
What are the Five Ws and One H? They are Who, What, Why, When, Where and How. Why are the Five Ws and One H important? Journalism purists will argue your story isn't complete until you answer all six questions. It’s hard to argue this point, since missing any of these questions leaves a hole in your story.
