Submitting an Opinion Article

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 800 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.

The form below is the best way to submit your article. Please type or paste your article as plain text, not HTML, and please do not use brackets. Information relevant to your expertise, or additional authors, may be included in the comments field. Please note that this form is to submit opinion articles only; letters to the editor can be sent by e-mail to, and submissions to the Outlook section should be sent to (Please do not send attachments to either address.)
