On Friday, April 13, University Communications and the Center for Ideas & Society will host a full-day “Write to Change the World” seminar for faculty, offered by the New York-based Op-Ed Project. In The OpEd Project’s highly interactive, energetic seminar, you will 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.
Participants leave the first day with a draft outline op-ed in hand. Participants will have ongoing access to OpEd Project resources, events and mentors.
There are 20 slots of the workshop. Please submit applications by April 6, 2018.
Note: Workshop location changed to CHASS Interdisciplinary Building, Room 1113.
