Write to Change the World

State Fair of Texas Presents OpEd Project’s Write to Change the World, a two-day workshop for southern Dallas leaders of nonprofit and community-based organizations.

The OpEd Project is a social venture founded to increase the range of voices and quality of ideas we hear in the world.

In The OpEd Project’s highly-interactive, energetic seminar, we explore the source of credibility and how to establish it; how to present ideas quickly and powerfully under pressure; the components of powerful, evidence-based argument; the difference between being “right” and being effective; and strategies for making a greater impact, including how to escape a pigeonhole, how to preach beyond the choir, and the value of seeing your argument as part of a bigger picture—and yourself as part of a larger public conversation.

The deadline to apply to participate is March 15, 2019.
