Register for virtual workshop

The 2020 Presidential Election, more so than any other, was run on digital platforms as we lived through the unprecedented realities of the Coronavirus pandemic. Effective campaign strategies for digital storytelling were dependent on not only originality, but on pitching and producing thoughtful media content. This highly interactive workshop, run by J.P. Carroll, former deputy director of Hispanic media for the Republican National Committee (2018-2020), will cover how to both pitch a story and then write a compelling opinion piece (op-ed), guiding participants through the steps from developing a target audience to maximizing impact once the piece is published. The workshop will end with 15 minutes networking time with the workshop lead.
