PEP Holds OpEd Writing Workshop with Scholars Strategy Network

On March 9th, PEP, in collaboration with The Scholars Strategy Network, held a free, hands-on OpEd Writing Workshop for scholars interested in learning how to write and pitch compelling, research-based op-eds. During the workshop, participants worked in groups to learn how to craft a good lede, identify and incorporate timely news hooks, signal the author’s unique and relevant expertise, increase the likelihood of publication, and structure an op-ed for maximum impact.
