Alabama Scholars Strategy Network Op-Ed Writing Workshop

This is a past event.

The Alabama chapter of the Scholars Strategy Network (SSN) and Sigma XI are excited to host an Op-Ed writing workshop for interested academic researchers. 

The workshop is a hands-on training for scholars who want to learn how to write and pitch compelling, research-based Op-Eds. Participants will 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.

The workshop is great for all scholars, whether they have written Op-Eds before or are just starting to think about writing their first. We particularly encourage faculty and graduate students to attend, and the first 20 graduate students to register (and attend) the event will receive a $25 Uber Eats gift card.

Thursday, January 27 at 3:00pm to 4:30pm
