In this new workshop, learn how to turn your newsletter or magazine into a voice for social justice. As an editor, you have the power to use your publication to help shape the dialogue on the issues your organization cares about. Don't settle for bland when you don't have to. Editing for Advocacy will help you foster creative debate, engaging conversations and passionate persuasive argument in your print or online publication.
