Op-Eds and guest columns present an effective way to make your voice heard on issues you care about. If you are a paid or volunteer marketing coordinator for an agency or institution, Op-Eds are great (free!) way to increase your organization’s reach to potential donors, volunteers, and clients.
This Saturday, May 1, I’ll be leading a one-day remote workshop from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Westport Writers Workshop on Op-Eds. I’ll be going over how to get the word out about your favorite causes, or write a reflective column about something you care about. I’ll also teach you how to work with editors, write well-crafted, convincing arguments that adhere to publications’ guidelines and word counts, and how to leverage information about your favorite agency’s mission to increase your chances of gaining publication and expanding your audience.
