You guys. The OpEd Project is coming back to Chicago with another awesome core seminar on July 28. Some of you may remember that I attended the core seminar last October, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. It inspired me to have one of the best years of my life, to become a thought leader in my community, and, of course, publish some articles.
The cool thing about The OpEd Project is that it isn’t just about writing op-eds. It’s about being inspired to say what has to be said, in any venue from newspapers to PTA meetings to conversations with friends. And that’s how change happens.
If you have any interest in this at all, you should attend the core seminar in July. As an added bonus, the Chifems are co-hosting the happy hour afterwards, which is open to all so you can meet the newly-minted OpEd Project Alums, along with leaders Deborah Siegel and Michele Weldon, Chicago feminist Kate Harding, and I’ll be there, too. Super early bird registration ended yesterday, BUT if five Chifems register to take the seminar together, you can get 20% off! That’s a lot! Contact OEP’s Chicago Regional Intern, Claudia Garcia-Rojas at email@example.com for more information. There is also the Pay in Words program that can offer scholarships to people who need them.
This is a GREAT opportunity, you guys. Don’t miss it.
Here’s some more info from the OpEd Project press release. Hope to see you there!
