Op-Ed Writing Workshop offered on Monday, February 10, 2020

The Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence in partnership with the Center for Environment and Purdue Policy Research Institute is offering an op-ed writing workshop at 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Feb. 10.

Conducted by the OpEd Project, the highly interactive, energetic workshop will explore:

  • The source of credibility and how to establish it.
  • Ways to present ideas quickly and powerfully under pressure.
  • The components of powerful, evidence-based argument.
  • The difference between being “right” and being effective.
  • Strategies for making a greater impact, including how to escape a pigeonhole, how to preach beyond the choir, and the value of seeing your argument as part of a bigger picture — and yourself as part of a larger public conversation. 

There is an internal application process due to the limited number of seats available. The deadline for applications is 9 am, Jan. 24. Interested participants are required to complete a short online application here.

Complete details can be found in the Purdue Today announcement.
