Yesterday, veteran journalist and radio show host Rose Aguilar led our “Write to Change the World” program at the offices of Ms. Magazine. The sold-out training focused on expertise, social responsibility, and of course, key aspects of a powerful OpEd. Tom Zoellner, OpEd Project Favorite, added a great deal to the day with his tips about muscular sentences, being counterintuitive, and cutting down the fluff. Following the program, Ladies LA joined OpEd Project participants for a cocktail hour at The Avalon Hotel. Senior Editor and OpEd Project Mentor-Editor Michele Kort dropped by this evening event to chat about the Ms. Blog, feminism, and how to be a great writer (it’s no surprise Founder Katie Orenstein was her prime example!).
