How to Submit an Opinion Piece to EG News

by | Jul 15, 2021

East Greenwich News welcomes opinion pieces (formerly known as op/eds). Here are some guidelines to consider when writing:

  • Opinion submissions should be kept under 1,000 words. 
  • Submission is not a guarantee of publication.
  • EG News reserves the right to edit submissions for readability, length and accuracy.
  • If major editing is required, we will work with the author to try to arrive at mutually agreed upon changes.
  • Refrain from personal attacks; they will be edited out. 
  • Citations to studies or research papers are not allowed; writers may include a mention or link to an organization where readers could find such studies or papers. 
  • Include a two-sentence max bio.
  • EG News will contact you upon receipt of your article within one day to confirm receipt and will contact you a second time within one week to confirm publication status. If you have not heard back from us within these timeframes, please contact us. 
  • Send your article to [email protected], and put Opinion in the subject line along with the topic.
