EPIC: A Format for Powerful Writing

Use EPIC to organize your ideas and clarify your message. This format makes opinion writing much easier and less time-consuming. Instead of spending a lot of time trying to figure out where to begin, use the EPIC outline and your letter to the editor will almost write itself!

Engage: Engage the reader with a startling fact, a visceral image or a strong statement of a serious problem.

Propose: Make a specific proposal regarding the Offering of Letters or a piece of legislation.

Illustrate: Illustrate how the proposal would work and why it's important. Give a few details or examples to make it concrete.

Call to Action or Commitment: Call on your legislators to take a specific action or express your commitment to alleviating hunger.
