On Wednesday April 3rd from 5:30 to 7:00 P.M. the Policy Lab will be hosting a workshop with New York Times journalist Michael Tomasky on how to write op-eds. Tomasky will discuss the challenges of writing op-eds that effectively communicate ideas about politics and policy to the public.
The workshop is geared towards students, faculty, and others who want to learn how to engage with the public about their research findings and ideas. Tomasky will provide insights from his experience as a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times, a columnist for The Daily Beast, and the editor of Democracy: A Journal of Ideas.
This event is open to the public. It will take place in the Policy Lab at 77 Prospect St. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP below. This event is made possible by the Poynter Fellowship, and is being co-hosted by the Yale Roosevelt Institute.
