Want to break into a new area of essay writing, give your cause-driven organization more visibility, or just get paid for your opinion? This five-week workshop is for writers interested in learning how to craft opinion pieces that matter. You will learn the elements of an op-ed, how to generate unique angles pegged to timely news stories, and when to pitch editors. Your weekly reading assignments, writing assignments, and class discussions will examine some of the most thought-provoking opinion pieces online. Participants will leave with a solid draft of an opinion piece that is ready to be pitched for publication.
