Highly recommended reading: “Penn State, My Final Loss of Faith,” by Thomas L. Day, which appeared last month in the Washington Post.
It’s an excellent commentary by someone with extensive experience connected to the now-controversial Second Mile charity founded by alleged pedophile Jerry Sandusky. The piece came to my attention today after Day, a fellow Medill alum, sent a pitch for another op-ed (focusing on fired Penn State football coach Joe Paterno) over the alumni list-serv.
Day’s inquiry prompted me to refer back to a most helpful resource for anyone seeking to pitch an opinion piece: The OpEd Project.
While The OpEd Project’s goal is to encourage more diverse voices, particularly women, to have their works published, the insights, resources and links on the site are a treasure trove for anyone seeking to disseminate their viewpoint on any variety of subjects.
