Opinion in a Pinch

your opinion,
our writing,
real impact

Welcome to Opinion in a Pinch, your source for professional, cost-effective, custom and confidential writing, editing and consulting services.

Are you a newspaper editorial editor with a looming deadline? Maybe you’re a political candidate, subject expert or nonprofit that needs help getting your great ideas ready for print or a campaign.

Opinion in a Pinch can help you produce the right editorial, column, white paper or press release to achieve your goals. All you need to do is tell us the topic, your opinion and how many words. If you're not sure what direction or topic to tackle, we can help you think through some options.

Your content will be ready for publication online and in print, and when it is published, we will promote it on our social media channels, increasing your reach and driving traffic to your site.

Everyone has ideas. We have the experience and skills to put your ideas into a persuasive form that will engage readers and start a conversation.

What's your opinion worth?

Chris Trejbal thinks and writes with a power and precision that makes him one of the more impressive commentators I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of working with. He combines an incisive mind with a well-honed conscience, an unrelenting advocacy of justice — and a sense of humor in the bargain, a virtue to which more of us should aspire.
— Tommy Denton, former president of the National Conference of Editorial Writers
