Writing previews

Previewing films, shows, performance and exhibitions doesn’t need to be complicated. With the right tools, a clear and enticing preview can grab the reader’s attention and entice them in.

First thing is to look at is who you are writing for, that is: Who is your reader and what are they interested in?

  • provide details of who, what, where when
  • give a taste, a feel of the show.
