SAPIENS Workshop: A Masterclass in Writing for the Public

This workshop provides training in transforming anthropological research into op-eds or essays for a broad public. Taught by expert editors at the online magazine SAPIENS, the multi-day workshop will help participants develop skills for the craft of popular writing. At the end of the workshop, the participants will have an understanding of the editorial process for magazines and newspapers, a grasp of the foundational principles of popular writing, a working draft of an essay or op-ed, and connection with a mentor who can provide guidance beyond the workshop. This is a competitive grant program of the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research in collaboration with the Association of Black Anthropologists, Black in Bio-Anthropology Collective, and Society of Black Archaeologists.
