“In My Opinion” – Boreas Communications Workshop

November 16, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Free
Pond surrounded by fall scenery and foliage

It’s easier than ever to enter the public conversation through a variety of forums such as Facebook, tweets and tirades at your local bar. Still, a well-crafted opinion piece holds sway. If you have the skills, discipline, rigor and leadership to put your ideas out into this more formal public conversation, you can share your viewpoint with thousands or even millions of influential people. This workshop will introduce you to the art of the op-ed, get you started on your very own op-ed and offer ideas on where you can pitch your finished piece. We bring in experts, including editors from major Twin Cities media, to help.

This event is for graduate students and post-docs only. Interested participants must apply to be considered for the workshop. Deadline for application is Monday, October 10.
