How to Write an Op-ed that Changes the World

What is just like an epic Facebook rant, except smarter, and about 1,000 times more likely to be read by a person in a position of power?

An op-ed. They’re a few hundred words that can plant a seed and change the world.

In this one-evening seminar you will learn how to harness your energy and ideas into a well-organized and powerful op-ed. You will leave the session with an op-ed draft ready to go, an editor’s email address to send it to, and a cover letter in hand… along with an increased efficacy to write an op-ed about anything in the future.

Your instructor, Jesse Scaccia, has had multiple op-eds published in The New York Times, and was a columnist for local publications PilotOnline, Norfolk Compass, and AltDaily.com, where he was also the editor-in-chief. His local community activism has included work supporting The NEON District, government transparency, local businesses, LGBT rights and visibility, mental healthcare access, and reforming marijuana laws.

Please note: This class is an online class. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
