Virtual Business Chat:
Meet the Editors Looking for Op-Eds

Presented by the NASW Advance Copy column

Date: Tuesday, April 4, 2023
Start Time: 3:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM PT
Event Access Link: (member login required)

Opinion pieces are a great tool to bring attention to your research, your expertise on a topic and your new or upcoming book. Yet, op-eds are different from reported stories. How do you propose an op-ed to an editor and convince them that you are the qualified expert to write it? In this panel we will hear from three opinion editors—at Bloomberg, Scientific American and Nature—about what topics they are interested in, how to pitch them and what elements a good op-ed should have. Whether you are a book author or an expert in a particular field, this panel will help you hone your opinion-writing prowess.

Your NASW member colleague and volunteer event host Lina Zeldovich has invited the following guests to speak on the topic.

Invited Speakers:

David Dudley, Bloomberg

Anna Nowogrodzki, Nature

Katie O'Reilly, Sierra Club Magazine
