We all have an opinion in the aftermath of the election, but how does a writer take his or her impassioned response and turn it into a 700-word publishable, thoughtful commentary? How can you make your voice stand out above the rest? In this three-hour seminar, we'll look at how to generate ideas for effective op-eds that have broad appeal due to their passion and expertise. Then, we'll discuss the specifics of how to write an op-ed meant to inspire change, how to pitch your pieces, and where to submit them.
