In this four-session writing workshop series, you will put The OpEd Project seminar into practice. Drawing on peer feedback and one-on-one instruction from a Mentor-Editor, participants will refine their skills and write, polish, and pitch at least one op-ed. You will do short writing exercises, workshop articles as a group, and discuss the nuts and bolts of writing effective arguments.

Want to know what it’s like from an alum?  Here’s how a recent participant described her experience: "Thank you all very much for helping me WRITE OUT LOUD. In four short weeks Katherine you moved my writing forward more than it has developed in the last four years. BIG GOLF CLAP to all of you, a positively ROWDY one, in fact!" --Qanta A. A. Ahmed MD
