Your audience isn’t the newspaper’s readers. It’s the editor, because that’s the person who decides if your piece sees the light of day.

If you think of your claim as the solution to a problem, you've tapped into the thing that most interests readers: you're thinking about what they consider a problem, and how your claim can fix it.
Op-eds -- some of you may call them "bylines" -- can be written lots of different ways. I teach a straightforward method that uses three arguments as the body. Here's a variation that follows an easy-to-borrow template for your own op-ed writing. The author wants to make five points, so he lists them in the middle and numbers them. He writes a brief intro up front and a short close plus a call to action.
Op-eds can be overwhelming to write, but anytime you have a few well-defined points to make, this model can help you make quick work of the task.
