Op-Ed Workshop for Members: Getting the Renewable Energy Message Out
October 14, 2020, 3p.m. – 4p.m.
In partnership with The Progressive Media Project, we are inviting MREA Members to participate in a virtual hands-on op-ed writing clinic. Our goal is to empower people with important stories to share with the confidence and tools for writing successful op-eds and communicating their messages effectively. The Progressive presented a shortened version of this workshop at The 2019 Energy Fair.
The Progressive Media Project will offer a virtual, but hands-on, training for MREA Members on Wednesday, October 14 at 3 pm. This 90-minute workshop begins with a writing exercise that teaches participants how to write their crucial first sentence. From there, they will provide instruction on their own typology of four kinds of op-eds. Concrete writing tips, including how to overcome writer’s block, how to construct an argument, and how to write conclusions will be offered.
Participants will begin work on their own op-ed and The Progressive editorial staff will provide feedback. After the workshop, participants are invited to pitch op-ed ideas to The Progressive or request editorial assistance before submitting your op-ed. In order to provide the optimal workshop experience, participation is limited to about 20 MREA Members.
If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact MREA Communications Manager, Kaitlyn Kohl at email@example.com.
