On 14, 15, 21 and 22 December 2019, we ran Opinion Writing course which provided our students the guidance for developing original and engaging angles for stories as well as express their personality in their writing. This course was attended by media professionals from Melakakini Duo and was taught by R. Nadeswaran, senior columnist.
In general, your op-ed, review or commentary is a section for advocacy, denunciation and astonishment in the media. Editors want opinion pages to drive public debate. Whether you’re new to writing or want to improve your craft, this is the ultimate course for you to learn how to present a strong argument with confidence. Our experienced writers will provide the guidance for translating the basics into opinion writing and commentaries that are reasoned, forceful, responsible, engaging and readable.
