About the Event
This is a two-part Virtual Workshop on June 16th & June 23rd, 2023
Ticket price includes both workshop dates.
OpEd Project workshops are designed to inspire and cultivate a greater sense of social responsibility by clarifying our potential impact on the world. We use op-eds as an action step, but the framework and curriculum can apply to any place where someone seeks to have an impact - at their university or institution, in business, in political office, and beyond. Our 'Write to Change the World' workshop is based on time-tested models of transformational learning, designed to unlock knowledge in powerful and unexpected ways. In this highly-interactive, energetic workshop, we explore the source of credibility and how to establish it; how to present ideas quickly and powerfully under pressure; the components of powerful, evidence-based argument; the difference between being “right” and being effective; and strategies for making a greater impact, including how to escape a pigeonhole, how to preach beyond the choir, and the value of seeing your argument as part of a bigger picture—and yourself as part of a larger public conversation. You’ll expand the way you think about your particular expertise, discover tools that help you “translate” niche ideas into large themes, and explore how to pitch your ideas. You will leave the workshop with concrete results, including a draft outline of an op-ed in hand, and will have access to OpEd Project resources and events. All participants will also have follow-up access to our journalist mentors for individual feedback on their op-ed drafts.
