Joan Stewart, a.k.a. The Publicity Hound, is a publicity expert who will share the secrets of how to position yourself as an expert so the media start flocking to you too. Joan has accepted and rejected thousands of story ideas during her 22 years as a newspaper editor.

Joan Stewart, also known as The Publicity Hound, will tell you how to catch the attention of frazzled news directors, busy reporters and grumpy editors. In fact, Joan worked as a grumpy editor at three daily newspapers and The Business Journal in Milwaukee.
Her own publicity campaign began at age 10 when her hometown newspaper wrote a story about a blue ribbon she won for a 4-H sewing project at the Ohio State Fair. Today, she works as a media consultant and publishes her own print newsletter as well as a free on-line newsletter called The Publicity Hound´s Tips of the Week.
