Submissions and pitches are always welcomed and can be emailed to the Opinions Editor at email@example.com. Please keep in mind that your submission will be edited before it’s published, but you’ll be consulted at every step of the way.
Before completing a draft, anyone who is interested in writing an op-ed is strongly encouraged to pitch their ideas to the Opinions Editor. Once your pitch has been approved, keep the following in mind to ensure your piece is as successful as it can be.
How to write a successful op-ed
All op-eds begin with an argument. Yours should be about something that’s happening right now and that’s relevant to the community here at Queen’s. Try to resist tackling huge events taking place miles away and instead stick to the issues that affect the people around you in a meaningful way.
If you’d rather your words went unedited, please consider submitting a letter to the editor to the same email address, the word count for which should be 250 to 350 words.
