Last chance to apply!

Do you have an opinion? (If you're reading Equal Writes, you must). Want to learn how to express it more clearly in print?

Currently, women do not publish opinion and editorial pieces in major print and online outlets with anywhere near the frequency that men do. This Saturday, the Women's Center is hosting a full-day seminar by The Op-Ed Project; the seminar will teach participants to make bold, fair, persuasive arguments for the ideas and causes that they care about.
The ultimate goal is to equip students to bring about a change in our national conversation and thought leadership, which is currently overwhelmingly dominated (85%) by men. The session will be led by acclaimed writer and Feministing blogger Courtney E. Martin (yes, the Courtney E. Martin).

Enrollment is limited, with priority given to undergraduates. RSVP to the Women’s Center assistant Jody Whitehead at jwhitehe@. Please include your name, college or major, class year, and a brief description of your interest in the workshop. Spaces are limited, so don't miss out!

Saturday, February 21, 9 am – 4 pm in the Women’s Center, Frist 243.
