This program is the second part of a two-part workshop, limited to 20 participants. The first of which focuses on the steps needed to create an effective opinion piece.

Participants will have prepared a draft opinion piece and submitted it to the workshop leaders. Upon receiving permission from authors, we will workshop 3-4 opinion pieces with all the participants.

This Part II session will happen two weeks after Part I. All participants will receive feedback from our three media professionals and advice on next steps toward publishing in the New York PhilanthroPost and potentially other media outlets.

  • How to Identify your audience and desired impact
  • What publications look for and best practices for getting placed
  • How to write a strong opinion piece and how to leverage the content
  • Which medium is best: Infographic, Video, Editorial, or all of the above
  • Networks with other communications professionals in philanthropy
  • How you catch the attention of busy readers in an ever-growing sea of media noise
  • How you inspire readers to take action on your issue or share what you’ve written
