Op-Ed Writing Workshop at The Mark Twain House (Hartford, CT)

  • Mark Twain House 351 Farmington Ave Hartford, CT, 06105 United States

The oped section is often one of the easiest places for new writers to break into a publication, because it relies on personal experience and opinion. Newspapers, websites, and magazines often look for oped pieces from non-staffers that relate to the current events of the day, or evergreen pieces pinned to holidays, changing seasons, yearly events, etc.. In this workshop, we'll talk about what makes a good topic for an oped, how to write one, and how to sell one.
