Torie Bosch, editor of Slate.com's Future Tense channel and coeditor of What Future, discusses how to write opinion pieces to change people's minds.
Stubbornness may be the defining characteristic of the moment we're in. People seem increasingly reluctant to listen to other points of view or deviate from their tribe. So how can we get people to reconsider long-held—but perhaps poorly thought through—beliefs? In this informal workshop, Torie Bosch, editor of Slate.com's Future Tense channel and coeditor of What Future
, discusses how to write opinion pieces to change people's minds. Attendees will come up with an argument they want to make, and the group will discuss participants' arguments and how to make them stronger.
Co-presented by Future Tense Arizona State University.
