October 25, 2011
NCFR member and eminent author, Professor Stephanie Coontz, will be offering a teleseminar, Writing and Publishing Opinion Pieces on Thursday, October 27th, 5:30PM PST, 7:30PM CDT, 8:30 pm EDT.
An op-ed is a guest essay published in a newspaper's opinion section. It is a great way of demonstrating the relevance of your research or professional experience to public policy debates, helping people think about social problems in new ways, or publicizing an issue, organization, book, or cause. In this seminar Professor Coontz will discuss how to figure out the take-away points you want to make, how to present them in ways that will increase the chance that your op-ed will be accepted, and the principles of writing an effective op-ed.
