10F: Op-ed Writing for Novelists and Nonfiction Writers: Making Your Voice Heard in Polarizing Times
Limited Capacity seats available

Writing commentary is an art form, akin to crafting an essay. It helps even beginning fiction and nonfiction writers get first publication credits, and make their voices heard on the issues of the day before a wide audience. Write a few op-eds for national publications, and TV and radio shows might come calling.

Competition to get on the op-ed page is fiercer now, because so many writers want to make their views heard and inspire change. So how do you get an editor to choose YOUR op-ed out of the pack? In this hands-on workshop, we'll discuss: How do you get started? What grabs the attention of op-ed editors at the New York Times and other places? You’ll brainstorm ideas, write a top of a commentary, and get tips on how to get op-eds published from an experienced op-ed writer and author.
