Solutions for Op-Ed Writing

You’re invited to join the Solutions Journalism Network for a two-hour workshop on Op-Ed writing with Tom Zoellner.

The workshop will tackle tried-and-true methods for getting your op-ed column published in a major daily newspaper, and is open to journalists at all levels.

Zoellner is a senior facilitator with The OpEd Project, a national nonprofit dedicated to raising the voices of women and people of color in the nation’s media. He has run courses in opinion writing for faculty at Dartmouth College, Cornell University and DePaul University, and his own op-eds have run in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Houston Chronicle, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and many other newspapers.

The Solutions Journalism Network supports and connects journalists interested in doing solutions journalism, rigorous reporting about how people are responding to problems. For more info, check out
