The Jewish Independent and the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA) Australia are excited to offer participants the chance to receive online training on how to write an opinion editorial piece with a chance to pitch to the The Jewish Independent for potential publication. 

The Jewish Independent is an Australian online newspaper with analysis, intelligent debate and new ideas about life through a Jewish lens. The Jewish Independent's editorial team provides quality journalism, offering a platform for some of Australia’s best writers, and nurturing new and diverse voices.

JOFA Australia seeks to expand the spiritual, ritual and intellectual opportunities for women within the framework of halakha (Jewish law), by advocating meaningful participation for women in family life, synagogues, houses of learning and Jewish communal organisations to the fullest extent possible.

The course caters for persons with and without experience in op-ed writing. There is no age limit on applicants, all Jewish people (18+) are invited to apply from all Australian states and Territories.
