It’s easy to think that data speaks for itself. But data alone often isn’t enough. Analysts, advocates, fundraisers and policymakers must be skilled writers who can convey policy stories that persuade readers to take meaningful action to address a pressing policy challenge.
Work with expert writers and editors, and practice evidence-based persuasive writing to form policy arguments that have the power to change minds and incite action.
Through interactive lectures and case studies, you will cultivate a robust toolkit to write, revise, and polish persuasive policy stories tailored to meet the unique needs of your audience. Join the program to practice evidence-based writing strategies and incite meaningful action.
Apply the skills you learn by developing a customized portfolio including pieces like a policy brief, memo, op-ed, and grant proposal. Your portfolio will grow using the strategies gained in the lectures, case study exercises, and personalized support from peer groups and individual coaching.
