Write and Be Counted: Op-Eds and Letters

An op-ed is a column or guest essay published in the opinion section of a newspaper (Opposite the Editorial page). Most are between 500-750 words, and most outlets will take submissions by fax, e-mail or mail. Letters to the editor allow you to offer a short rebuttal to an article or commentary, or add a crucial missing perspective. Most letters should be 150-250 words. Specific guidelines by news outlet (listed by distribution) are listed here.

  1. The Wall Street Journal

    Op-Ed Submission

    600-1200 words, double-spaced. Must be strong argument about issue in news, not response to Journal article. Exclusive use of your article is required and the paper reserves 10 working days to keep it under consideration. Include cover letter, name, address, phone, fax, e-mail. E-mail edit.features@wsj.com or fax 212/416-2255.

    Letter Submission

    300 word limit, must relate to story or editorial in WSJ–include date, headline and page number of article, city where writer is located. E-mail wsj.ltrs@wsj.com or fax 212/416-2255.

  2. The New York Times

    Op-Ed Submission

No attachments, please. To send a letter to the editor: letters@nytimes.com (for readers of The New York Times) inytletters@nytimes.com (for readers of The International New York Times)

  3. USA Today

    Op-Ed Submission

    Columns typically run 650 to 900 words in length. Those most likely to be accepted deal in an incisive, compelling way with issues now at the top of the news or introduce wholly new subject matters and insights of interest to our readers.

    Submissions should be sent to theforum@usatoday.com as pasted-in text rather than an attachment. Because of so many unsolicited submissions, a response may take up to a week.

    Letter Submission

    If you’re interested in joining other conversations about topics in USA TODAY or subjects important to you, e-mail letters@usatoday.com.

    Letters are edited for accuracy, clarity and length. Submissions of 200 words or fewer have the best chance of being published. Letters that include a name, address, day and evening phone numbers, and that are verified by USA TODAY, are considered for publication.

    Letters may also be submitted by fax at 703-854-2053 or by mail to 7950 Jones Branch Dr., McLean, VA 22108.

    Op-Ed Submission

    The Post welcomes submissions of opinion articles on any topic for publication in print and online. Submissions must be exclusive to us and can be of any length, though they are unlikely to be accepted if they are longer than 750 words. We do not consider articles sent to other publications or posted online, including on a personal blog, nor do we consider anonymous or pseudonymous submissions. We consider only completed articles and do not provide guidance on ideas or proposals. Countless factors affect whether an opinion article is suitable for publication in the newspaper or online, including space constraints, timeliness and relevance. You need not possess any special expertise to have your article considered for publication, though if you do, please elaborate. We do our best to read all submissions promptly and will contact you within one week if we are interested in publishing your article. If you do not hear from us in a week, it is safe to assume we will not be able to use your article.

    Letter Submission

    We prefer letters that are fewer than 200 words and take as their starting point an article or other item appearing in The Post. They may not have been submitted to, posted to or published by any other media. They must include the writer’s full name — anonymous letters and letters written under pseudonyms will not be considered. For verification purposes, they must also include the writer’s home address, e-mail address and telephone numbers. Writers should disclose any personal or financial interest in the subject matter of their letters.

  12. Dallas Morning News

    Op-Ed Submission

    The best way to get a sense of what type column to submit is to read our pages regularly. You’ll find that in addition to nationally syndicated columnists, we often publish columns about state and local issues that are written by those with specific knowledge about the topic.

    Our op-ed columns run about 650 words.

    Include a “tagline” identifying yourself and providing an email address at which interested readers may contact you. Also send a JPG of yourself to run with the column.

    Submit your column to: viewpoints@dallasnews.com

    Letter Submission

    Letters are selected to represent a diverse set of views on as many issues as possible. Due to the volume of mail, it isn’t possible to print all of the letters received. That’s also why letters must be under 200 words to be considered for publication. We require full contact information. Only the writer’s full name and city will be published.

    Submit your letter using this form.

    Op-Ed Submission

  27. Seattle Times

    Op-Ed Submission

    To be considered, a submission should have a strong opinion and be no longer than 650 words.

    A guest column is for making arguments or comments on public policy or issues in the news. It is not a place for organizations or agencies merely to report on programs.

    We give highest priority to local writers writing about local topics.

    We require first-publication rights for print and online to all of our Op-Ed submissions. If your Op-Ed has been published elsewhere in print, on a personal blog or on Facebook, we will not be able to use it.

    Please send your submission by email: oped@seattletimes.com

    If you do not hear from us within five business days, we will not be using your submission.

    Please include the text of the submission in the body of the email or in an attached Microsoft Word document.

    We do not publish Op-Eds written anonymously or under pseudonyms.

    Please include a headshot of the author, minimum size 200 KB, and a biography of 30 words or fewer.

    Please include Web URLs for statistics, facts and reports mentioned in your Op-Ed submission.

    More information on submitting an op ed is available here.

    Letter Submission

    When submitting a letter, please include the topic or headline and date of the article, editorial or opinion piece to which your letter refers.

    Letters to the editor should be 200 words or fewer. A writer decreases his or her chances of being selected for publication if the letter exceeds that length. Please do not expect us to publish letters from a single writer more frequently than once every three months to give other readers a chance to express their opinions. If your letter is selected for publication, you may be contacted for identity verification or if we have questions about its content.

    You may mail, fax or email your letter, and all letters must include your full name (no initials), address and telephone number(s) for verification. Only your name and city of residence are published. Letters become the property of The Seattle Times and may be edited.

    Mail to: Letters Editor, The Seattle Times, P.O. Box 70, Seattle, WA 98111

  28. Oregonian

    Op-Ed Submission

    The Oregonian welcomes submissions of 500 words or fewer for the daily commentary (or “op-ed”) page. However, because of the heavy volume of submissions, we regret that we cannot acknowledge an article or return it. If submissions are accepted for publication, authors will be contacted within a week. “Status report” calls are strongly discouraged.

    What are we looking for? Preference for our “In My Opinion” feature goes to short essays on highly topical issues or themes of particular relevance to the Pacific Northwest, Oregon and the Portland area. On matters of national or international scope, special expertise is generally a prerequisite. Good writing and conciseness are especially welcome. Essays exceeding 500 words will usually be too lengthy for consideration.

    Send to commentary@oregonian.com with your submission in the message field. (Attachments are discouraged.) Manuscripts may also be sent by fax to 503-294-4193, or by mail to Op-Ed Editor, The Oregonian, 1500 S.W. First Ave., Suite 400, Portland, OR 97201. If possible, please include a photo of yourself, either color or black and white.

    Letter Submission

    Op-Ed Submission

    Open Forum

    Commentary Pieces for Sunday Insight

    Please limit your submission to about 700 or fewer words. Insight, a Sunday commentary section, aims to provide a forum to shake up conventional wisdom and provoke fresh thinking. Have a piece about an issue in the news that’s unusual in its approach and uncommonly well-written? Mad? Outraged? Have an only-in-the-Bay-Area story? Do you know someone who is tackling a problem or meeting a challenge in a particularly innovative way? Let us know.

    Submit your op ed through this form.

    Letter Submission

    Please limit your letters to about 200 or fewer words.

  37. Pittsburgh Post Gazette

    Op-Ed Submission

    The Post-Gazette encourages you to submit opinion articles for use on the Perspectives pages and in the Sunday Forum section. Here are submission guidelines, along with background information for first-time writers.

    Send the piece by one of the following methods:

    E-mail: opinion@post-gazette.com (It’s easier to read text in the e-mail message, but we can accept Word files.)

    Fax: 412-263-2606 (Attn: Opinion Page)

    U.S. Mail: Opinion Page, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 358 North Shore Drive, Suite 300, Pittsburgh, PA 15212

    The ideal op-ed article is a compelling argument about a timely topic by someone in a position of expertise. The writing must be clear and accessible to the general reader. Standard length is between 600 and 800 words. We publish longer pieces in the Sunday Forum.

    Our “First Person” feature is a venue for personal essays. We prefer pieces that are topical, linked to the news of the day. But graceful writing, strong voice and humor are the key elements.

    An op-ed is not a direct response to an article or commentary published in the Post-Gazette. If you want to offer your own opinion on an issue, feel free to submit an opinion column. In short, an op-ed must be free-standing, not a point-by-point reply to something published in the newspaper. We occasionally publish responses to op-eds and news articles under the heading “In Rebuttal”; they run between 400 and 600 words.

    Letter Submission

    The Post-Gazette welcomes your letters. Please include your address and phone number for verification. Pseudonyms or anonymous letters are not published. All letters are subject to editing. We ask that letters be exclusive to the PG. We regret that we can neither print nor acknowledge all the correspondence we receive. Letters accepted for publication appear in our print edition and on our website.

    Letters should be no more than 250 words and should address no more than one topic.

    Op-Ed Submission

    Letter Submission

    We get hundreds of letters every week. Although we can’t answer or acknowledge each letter, we do read every one of them. We have space to publish only about 60 letters a week, so the competition is tough. Here are tips on getting your letter published:

    – Get to the point. The best letters are timely, straightforward and focused on a single issue.
    – Our standard limit for a letter is 200-250 words, but shorter is better. On occasion, we make exceptions. But the chances of a long letter being published are slim.
    – All letters are subject to editing for fact, grammar, length, clarity and taste. It’s fair to criticize the ideas and arguments of others, but we don’t allow name-calling.
    – We don’t publish form letters, open letters or poetry.
    – We never publish unsigned letters or those signed with pseudonyms.
    – No letter writer usually will be published more frequently than once every 60 days. The aim is to use as many writers as possible.
    – If you are responding to a specific article, letter or editorial, please include the date of its publication.
    – Your letter must include your address and a daytime phone number. Only your name and city of residence — not your address — will be published. If we’re considering your letter for publication, we will call you to verify your authorship and your willingness to see it in print.

    You may send your letter to the editor by e-mail, fax or postal service.

  46. Buffalo News

    Op-Ed Submission

    MY VIEW: This is a first-person column open to all Western New York writers. Submissions should be 600 words. The writer should include some personal narrative (story-telling) along with the expository argument he or she is presenting. My View acquires its popularity with readers from writers’ willingness to reveal something of themselves and their lives (not merely what they think, but what they do and are) adding a human dimension. Simply giving your opinion on an issue is not acceptable. The News relies on its syndicated columnists for that.

    A My View should make one strong major point and then develop it. It should have a theme that could be summarized in a single, complete sentence. Do not submit “how to” or advice articles. Please include address, telephone number, and a brief author I.D. with all submissions. Writers may appear no more than three times a year. There is no payment for this column.

    ANOTHER VOICE: This is an issues-oriented column. Submissions should be 460 words. The author should have some background or expertise on the subject. There is no payment for this column.

    The News retains publication and republication rights and requires first regional use. Writers are free to resell the articles later to other publications. If an article being submitted to The News has already been printed anywhere else, nationally or locally, the writer must disclose this at the time of submission.

    Submission to My View and Another Voice must be emailed to editpage@buffnews.com

    Letter Submission

    Letters should be a maximum of 250 words.

    Letters must be written to the editors of the News.

    They should not be copies of letters to someone else or “open letters” to a third party.

    The letter should not reply to an earlier letter that was itself a reply to another writer.

    A writer or household may be represented in the column only once in 30 days.

    Letters must be submitted with the writer’s full name.

    The writer’s name must be published, rather than a pseudonym.

    The writer must include his or her street address and telephone number, though only the town of residence will be published.

    Letters should be from writers within The News circulation area or, if from outside, commenting on issues particular to this area. Letters must convey an opinion.

    The column is not a community bulletin board to be used for announcements of events, or other primarily informational items.

    The column does not print poetry.

    Letters critical of the operating policies of local broadcast-news organizations should be sent to those organizations rather than The News.

    No straight endorsements of candidates will be printed, though letters discussing candidates’ specific performance or positions on issues may be used.

    Letters written as school projects cannot be printed.

    Letters must be fact-checked.

    If the editors cannot verify that the material presented as fact in the letter is accurate, the letter cannot be printed.

    The News reserves the right to edit all letters.
