Public affairs professionals: Writing is critical to your job. Do you have the skills you need?

Join us for this intensive writing workshop to build the communication skills necessary for your job.

Distilling dense and complex policy material into succinct and clear writing can be difficult. Many advocacy professionals must successfully engage their audiences across multiple, disparate communication platforms. Whether you’re writing an op-ed for a local newspaper; creating compelling, sponsored content for a Capitol Hill publication; or developing a persuasive advocacy email, we will enhance your communications skill set to help you craft the perfect public affairs message.

Learn core competencies in public affairs writing from a leading communications and public affairs expert. Topics include:

  • Writing authentic and persuasive op-eds for local, national and trade news outlets
  • Creating engaging and targeted social media content
  • Crafting dynamic and persuasive policy issue briefs or one-pagers
  • Developing informative and impactful public affairs and public policy webpages
