Opinion Writing 101: The Art of the Op-Ed [Elisabeth Eaves]
Introductory | In a time of division, how do you convince others of your point of view? Writers who shape the way we think have mastered the art and craft of the op-ed. We’ll dissect successful op-eds and talk surefire structure. Students will submit story ideas for feedback, and during the second session will outline their own drafts. As this is a class about persuasion, controversial ideas will likely be discussed. Readings will be sent out in advance.
