Writing the Op-Ed [Kathleen Alcala]

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | The Seattle Times accepts brief letters for their op-ed page. At 650 words, an opinion piece requires more work than a letter, but stretches your influence much farther. In this class, we will focus on a topic, try to understand your audience, and choose an approach. Two hours will be spent in discussion and looking at examples (including instructor’s), one hour in-class writing and discussing our work. We need to speak out now more than ever.
