The Organizers Writing Workshop is a chance for organizers to learn the fundamentals of writing for publication. The instructor will lead students through a series of reading and writing assignments, including how to write pitches, nut graphs, and ledes as well as short- and long-form articles. Participants will be expected to attend weekly writing workshops, to complete assignments outside of class, and to come prepared to give and receive feedback on short- and long-form writing assignments. By the end of the six-week workshop, students will have developed a long-form article and gained practical insights into how to pitch it to publications. Students will also engage with guest lecturers about their experiences as writers, the relationship between organizing and writing, and what it takes to get writing published.
