My Prerogative: Writing Cultural and Political Commentary for Publication

Writing opinion pieces is both an art and a science. It can be very rewarding, and very scary to write about oneself or one's opinions about controversial topics. But fear not! This workshop will provide attendees with the basic skills of how to structure an opinion piece, how to provide evidence to support your opinions, and some tips on pitching your work to editors.

Instructor: Kenyon Farrow is a Cleveland Heights based writer, editor, and strategist. He is the co-editor of the book Letters From Young Activists: Today’s Rebels Speak Out. His work has also appeared in many anthologies including most recently Abolition for the People (edited by Colin Kaepernick), Spirited: Affirming theSoul of Black Lesbian and Gay IdentityFor Colored Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Still Not EnoughWe Have Not Been Moved: Resisting Racism and Militarism in 21st Century America, and Black Gay Genius: Answering Joseph Beam’s Call.
