Everyone seems to have an opinion, but we don’t necessarily want to read all of them. So how do you craft an op-ed that gets your perspective into the media in a form that others want to read? Join Walkley Award–winning Guardian Australia columnist Jeff Sparrow for a half-day workshop that looks at the business of opinion writing. From pitching to editors to structuring arguments, learn the dos and don’ts of turning your opinion into a publishable article.

Sydney Writers’ Festival is sponsoring one place per workshop for writers who may not otherwise be able to participate. Find more information and an online application form here.
