The Arizona Daily Star welcomes original guest opinions that are sent exclusively to the Star for first publication. These pieces of up to 600 words should express ideas, viewpoints, criticism and news analysis that encourage discussion on issues with an impact on the community. 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.
Any author may have a letter or guest opinion no more than every 30 days. 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.
