Opinion Writing

Your Voice Matters: Opinion Writing for Maximum Impact
Students in this course will learn to write a variety of persuasive opinion pieces, including op-eds, critical reviews, reported personal essays, and letters. We will work on developing critical thinking, research skills, and fact-based arguments, as well as lively, eloquent, and sensitive prose. We will read a wide range of exemplary op-eds and columns and examine how opinion writing shapes social change. Students will be encouraged to publish their work for public consumption on campus or beyond. Because this course may address issues that students find difficult, upsetting, or offensive, those who enroll must have an open mind and a willingness to engage with opposing viewpoints.
