Submit an Op-Ed
Thank you for your interest in publishing with The College Post!
We aim to publish a wide range of high-quality opinion and analysis from a diverse array of people for our well-informed readership. Please find our guidelines here.
Submissions must be exclusive to The College Post and not previously published. Op-eds should be between 600 and 1,000 words, but longer articles may be considered.
Articles should center on a strong argument and form a compelling narrative. Overtly partisan pieces may only be considered alongside an alternative viewpoint.
Don’t inundate articles with data and information, and don’t hesitate to decorate your essays with interesting, riveting stories to enhance the point you’re making and captivate the attention of readers. Statements of fact should be cited with a link. Please don’t use footnotes, endnotes, or references. Instead, supply hyperlinks.
We will respond only to authors whose essays are chosen for publication. If editors don’t respond in five days, it is safe to assume that we won’t consider your article for publication. Authors are also welcome to pitch ideas beforehand.
The College Post reserves the right to edit submissions for length, clarity, style, and grammar. Authors will be consulted if editors deem other changes necessary. We do not guarantee publishing solicited or unsolicited op-eds until we see the final draft.
Please write a brief summary, your full name, Twitter username (if you have one), high-resolution pictures of yourself and potential co-authors, and current title in the submission email. Don’t send your op-ed as an attachment but paste it into the email. Submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
