Do you have something to say about activism, academia, blackcoffeepoet.com, current events, literature, life, or politics? Is there something on your mind that mainstream media is not covering? Have you written something that has not found a home?
Write a Letter to Black Coffee Poet or an Opinion Editorial!
There is no need to pitch a Letter or Op-Ed as they are not articles. Keep in mind that not all Letters and Op-Eds submitted will be published, and they are their own genres of writing to be written with care, respect, and thoughtfulness like any other genre.
See some recently published letters to BCP:
Letter From A Seattle High School Teacher by Paulette Thompson
A Thank You Letter To Helen Betty Osborne From A Young Cree Woman by Megan Bertasson
See some recently published Opinion Editorials:
The Romney Doctrine by Dr. Gene Grabiner
Lest We Forget: Remembering Helen Betty Osborne by Robyn Bourgeois
Submit to firstname.lastname@example.org with Letter to BCP or Opinion Editorial in the subject line.
Submissions must include full name, phone number, and address of sender. Home addresses and phone numbers will not be published. I reserve the right to edit letters and opinion editorials. Letters run from 50 to 30o words. Opinion Editorials run from 700 to 800 words. Due to the volume of submissions I can not acknowledge or publish every submission.
Thank you for your support, time, and consideration.
