Submitting an op-ed

 

Op-ed policy:

The Texan welcomes op-ed submissions from members of the UT community (including alumni and former faculty and staff). In order to be considered for publication, op-eds must be fewer than 700 words and directly relate the UT community. Op-eds will not be considered if they have been published previously, including on social media, personal blogs, or other publications. 

Please:

1) Keep submissions under 500 words.

2) Tie your submission back to the UT community. If you're writing about a non-local issue, tell us why a Longhorn should care. Be as specific as possible.

3) Provide links for all your factual claims.

4) Submit along with your written contribution a phone number where you can be easily reached.

5) Include at the bottom of your submission a tag line in the following style:

- Students: [Last name] is a(n) [major][classification] from [hometown].

- Staff/faculty: [Last name] is a(n) [field][level of employment].

- Other: simply be as specific as possible about why you are qualified to write this piece. 

Op-eds should be sent to thedailytexanforum@gmail.com, where they will be reviewed by our Forum team.
