Guest Opinion

The Arizona Daily Star welcomes original guest opinions that are sent exclusively to the Star for first publication. These pieces of 500 to 620 words should express ideas, viewpoints, criticism and news analysis that encourage discussion.

When writing, authors should fully disclose their relationship with an issue and their expertise on the topic. This is particularly relevant when writing about a political campaign or candidate.

Facts must be annotated. Pieces containing information that cannot be easily verified, libelous statements or name calling will be rejected.

We suggest you write, edit and save a copy of your letter before copying it into the form.

Our general guideline is to not publish in print the same writer more than once a month, although exceptions may be made in order to provide readers with a variety of viewpoints.

Submissions may be edited for clarity or length. All submissions become the property of the Arizona Daily Star.

Please include a head-and-shoulders photograph, first saved as a high resolution jpg and then attached to the form.
