Webinar: Letters to the Editor & Op-Eds


Objectives of the webinar:  

  1. Craft openings that hook attention
  2. Connect the political with the personal, so your reader cares
  3. Choosing language that persuades 
  4. Best Practices for getting published

If possible, take 5 minutes to consider these 4 questions for a healthcare topic you care a lot about:

o   Who — are you writing to (imagine a person you know)?

o   What — is the one big idea you want to convince them of?

o   Why — you are the right person to tell them about this?

o   How — do you want them to respond now they’ve heard you?

We hope that at the end of this webinar, you will have the beginnings a letter to the editor or op-ed + the tools to finish crafting it, so that the Letters to the Editor team can help you submit it to media outlets!
