The Progressive Writers Bloc came together for the purpose of educating the public about progressive issues through newspaper opinion pieces. The articles (published and unpublished) are archived here and supplemented with links to documentation and background information.
Columbia Journalism Review’s mission is to encourage and stimulate excellence in journalism in the service of a free society. It is both a watchdog and a friend of the press in all its forms, from newspapers to magazines to radio, television, and the Web. Founded in 1961 under the auspices of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, CJR examines day-to-day press performance as well as the forces that affect that performance. The magazine is published six times a year, and offers a deliberative mix of reporting, analysis, criticism, and commentary. CJR.org, our Web site, delivers real-time criticism and reporting, giving CJR a vital presence in the ongoing conversation about the media.
PROGRESSIVE WRITERS COOPERATIVE AND SPEAKERS BUREAU
We are a group of sociologist authors located in northeastern colleges and universities who share the progressive values of equality and solidarity. As sociologists we seek to make our work publicly relevant and engaged. As individuals we are participants in progressive political movements that advance social change toward societies based on equality and solidarity.
Progressive Writers Cooperative and Speakers Bureau
The Progressive Media Project conducts one-day op-ed writing clinics for participating writers and foundation grantees. The workshops explain the role of op-eds in policymaking and provide tips on how to write an op-ed, including hands-on practice and individual tutorials. The Project also regularly presents shorter op-ed writing workshops at conferences.
