OpEd as a Metaphor: San Diego Women meet to Write to Change the World

At Saturday’s “Write to Change the World” seminar at UC San Diego, twenty up-and-coming opinionistas were asked to think of OpEd as a metaphor. It is always helpful to know the elements of an effective argument, said Seminar Leader Chloe Angyal, when advocating for the ideas and causes you believe in. While developing an effective argument is certainly a practical tool for anyone, Chloe explained how OpEd-writing can be a front-door forum to all kinds of amazing opportunities: book deals, jobs, media opportunities, funding, and so much more.

Well there you have it. Inspired much?
