First, please ensure you are submitting an op-ed and not a letter to the editor. Letters are short (under 200 words) and comment on an article in the paper to be considered for publication. If you'd like to submit a letter to the editor you can do so here.
Op-eds, or Viewpoints, are opinion columns that are often written by people who do not work for the newspaper. Our op-ed columns run about 600 words, though we also like shorter pieces. Email your column to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include your name, address, phone number, a short description of what you do for a living and anything else we should know about you that's relevant to the topic of your column.
This page will give you some tips on increasing the chance of your column being published.
