Let’s Write An Op-Ed

with Dr. Diana L. Gustafson


Workshop Description

Do you have some fresh new research findings that you want to get out into the world? Have a strongly held opinion about a hot-button issue? Or have a journal article or book chapter that you want to convert for public consumption? The goal of this interactive writing workshop is to provide you with the know-how to put fingers to keyboard and write a thoughtful, evidence-based op-ed. As a post-workshop bonus, participants will be offered comments on an op-ed of their choice. Come prepared to apply practical strategies for turning a theme, topic, or event of interest into a draft before exchanging feedback with a peer. We’ll review published examples to identify the purpose and key features of an informed, evidence-based op-ed. Hands-on activities will assist you in evaluating the clarity of your main point, the power of your opening hook, and the quality of the evidence supporting your argument. We’ll pay special attention to the scaffolding of your argument and the strength and persuasiveness of your authorial voice for your target audience. For more details, see:
