In this second part of a two-workshop series, Dr. Edelina Burciaga (Assistant Professor, Sociology) and Rachel Sturtz (ORDE) will teach you the basics of writing Op Ed pieces that appeal to the public and the media. You will work on building skills for translating your scholarship into quality writing for the layperson.
