Women’s Words: How To Get Your OpEd Published In The Media

The media outlets that we most consume -€“ The New York Times and The Seattle Times, for example – feature just 20% of OpEds that are written by women. The majority of the stories and insights we consume today, even ones by non-journalists, are written by men.

Writing and publishing an insightful OpEd is key to branding yourself as an expert, for your work to reach new audiences and have your story told. You don’t have to be a journalist — the best OpEds are often written by non-writers — but it’s important to know how to tell your story well.
Learn how to write an effective, persuasive OpEd on a topic you are already an expert on. Find out what types of pitches get successfully selected by an Opinion editor. Learn how to get published from Ruchika Tulshyan, an award-winning journalist and author.
Only 25 spaces available. Lunch from Caffe Torino included.
