Event description

Description

There may be no better way to get a new idea out in the conversation, or to push back against an old one, than publishing a brief oped column in a major daily newspaper. These forums can be hard to crack, but there are a few tried-and-true methods for formulating an argument in a way that will get an editor's attention and make yours stand out from the massive amount of submissions they receive.

Tom Zoellner is a senior facilitator with The OpEd Project, a national nonprofit dedicated to raising the voices of women and people of color in the nation's media. He has run courses in opinion writing for faculty at Dartmouth College, Cornell University and DePaul University, and his own opeds have run in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Houston Chronicle, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and many other newspapers.

The Solutions Journalism Network supports and connects journalists interested in doing solutions journalism, rigorous reporting about how people are responding to problems. Join our growing community of journalists. Our communities connect, support, and celebrate journalists interested in investigating and surfacing responses to social problems. From facilitating matchmaking between reporters and editors, to providing needed tools like story ideas, collaborators, and limited funding, we hope to increase the quality and quantity of solutions reporting in media across the world.

PLEASE NOTE - This workshop is open to journalists at all levels, whether you have worked on solutions stories or not. You do not need to have attended an SJN orientation to participate in this workshop.
