Academic Articles

Getting your work published in an academic journal is an important way to gain credibility, both with policymakers and the media. Michele Simon has published numerous research articles in a variety of academic journals including the Duke Law Journal, the Food and Drug Law Journal, the Journal of Urban Health, and the Journal of Global Drug Policy and Practice. If your goal is to publish an academic article, Eat Drink Politics can help with conceiving the idea, to researching the information, to writing and editing the final product. We can also suggest the right academic journal for your topic.

Fact Sheets & Talking Points

Fact sheets and talking points are important tools for getting your message out as succinctly. Even if you have a lengthy report chock full of useful information, most audiences are only willing to read a quick summary. We have years of experience in writing fact sheets on such diverse topics as alcohol harm in California, myths related to alcohol taxes, and food politics.

Feature Articles

Getting your message placed in a magazine or online publication can be a powerful tool to reaching a wider audience. Michele Simon has had dozens of articles published in a wide variety of outlets, including Mothering, Food Safety News, Grist, and AlterNet. Let us help you write and place your next feature article.

Op-eds & LTEs

Opinion articles and letters to the editor are important vehicles for getting your message read in the mainstream press. Michele Simon has had much success publishing op-eds and letters in such newspapers as the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as national syndication.

Opposition Research

It’s impossible to take on powerful industries without knowing who they are and how they operate. That’s why political campaigns conduct opposition research. Public health advocates should be just as prepared. Eat Drink Politics has years of experience researching the food and alcohol industries. Most corporate information isn’t hidden; you just have to know where to find it. Let us help provide your campaign with a deep analysis of the corporations, trade groups, front groups, and other lobbyists that want to undermine your success.

Reports

Reports are a critical tool to provide policymakers and reporters with detailed information. Michele Simon has extensive experience putting research into action through powerful report writing. Her groundbreaking 2007 report on alcoholic energy drinks led to federal action to ban the dangerous products as her follow-up case study explains.

Eat Drink Politics can help you at every stage of development, from conception to production including: 1) strategize the right topic to drive your policy agenda; 2) research the information; 3) draft, revise, and copy edit; 4) layout and print. We can also shepherd the process along, serving in an advisory capacity.
