More than 500 daily newspapers want to hear from YOU. With a new balance in Congress, and key issues in play, this is the time to make your voice heard and get paid for it. Newspapers across the country are seeking to hear from “John or Joan Q. Public” daily. Taught by an OP ED editor, you’ll learn the proper structure of an OP ED, how to persuasively make your point and knock down opposing arguments (politely); what editors look for and what red flags to avoid. You’ll learn where/how and who to contact, how to fit your views to the right newspaper, and the format in which to submit an OP ED. Previous class members have had OP EDs published. Sign up quick--this class sells out fast. This class is being repeated due to popular demand. One Saturday, May 18, 2 - 5 p.m.

Joyce Winslow was OP ED/Commentary Editor of the nonprofit, nonpartisan RAND Corporation and currently writes, pitches and places OP EDs for such private clients as Ambassadors, CEOs, and a former U.S. Secretary of Defense with whom she wrote a book published by the Brookings Institution. She has written and placed some 70 OP EDs in the last few years in top-tier mainstream newspapers, including some she bylined.

REFUND POLICY: Please note that we can issue class refunds up until seven (7) days before the first class session.
