Writing for Impact Workshop (James Ryerson)

James Ryerson

This 2-day workshop, for 2020-2021 NDIAS Faculty and Graduate Fellows, focuses on writing book excerpts and research-based op-eds for prestigious news outlets. The event is led by James Ryerson, Senior Story Editor at The New York Times.

Ryerson will lead a discussion on a range of public-writing topics, such as how to craft effective public-engagement pieces, how to get a piece of public writing published, and how to navigate the challenges and opportunities that come with public engagement.

Participants will also receive extensive feedback, both from Ryerson and their peers, on a piece of public writing of their own.
