Letters to the Editor
We at the Collegian are happy to announce that we are currently accepting Letters to the Editor! This means that your opinion on any article you read that came from us, or any other topic we haven’t yet covered can be covered by YOU in future issues!
To submit a letter to the editor, simply write on any topic in Microsoft Word format, submit your Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get back to you within 72 hours! To help with your initial writing, here are a few guidelines:
The more passionate you are about the topic, the better! If you have a strong opinion that agrees or strongly disagrees with anything we’ve written, we want to hear from you! If there is something happening on campus that you’re strongly against, we want to know! The most efficient way to make change on campus is to write about it for our paper, which is read by a majority of faculty and staff members. You have the power to make a huge difference on campus, and it starts with writing for us! We support the publication of any opinion, and the stronger that opinion is, the better.
It would be helpful if documents cover a relevant topic. This could be pop-culture related, a campus event, a reflection of life on campus, or a response to an article from our last issue. You are free to write about anything you want, and the more relevant it is to students, the better!
Proofreading your work tremendously helps our staff make sure that your letter to the editor represents your message in its intended right. We want to make sure that your message is represented to reflect you, which is difficult to accomplish when there are unintended errors in the document you submit. A quick read through of your document before submitting it will help both us and you make sure that your voice is heard, and we will continue to proofread your letter and work with you on it to ensure that it is published exactly to your liking.
We are happy to start reading any documents you submit, and we are ready to see your work published in future issues of The Collegian. Works submitted may be published with your name or anonymously, depending on your own preference, so don’t be afraid to be brutally honest in your documents. If you have any further questions, please email email@example.com and we will help you get writing!
