Every couple of months I post a callout for opinion editorials and letters. Read the callout below and take the opportunity to express yourself and get published:
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!
I welcome writing on:
Aboriginal Peoples and Politics
Feminism(s): Indigenous, Of Colour, Trans, 3rd Wave…
International and Local Politics
and so much more…
There is no need to pitch a Letter or Op-Ed as they are not articles. Keep in mind: 1. not all Letters and Op-Eds submitted will be published; 2. Letters and Op-Eds are their own genres of writing to be written with care, respect, and thoughtfulness like any other genre.
If you are new to blackcoffeepoet.com take some time to read the publication and find out what it’s about before submitting. Here at three resources for that: ABOUT and Black Coffee Poet and Popular Posts.
See some recently published letters:
Let Us Be Human: A Trans Woman Calls On Her Sisters To Act In Support of Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women by Cindy Bourgeois
Embracing Diversity by Rusty Kjarvik
See some recently published Opinion Editorials:
Laughter and Orgasm: Is Mainstream Science Catching Up To Indigenous Wisdom by Zainab Amadahy
Anti Violence Against Indigenous Women and Resurgence by Christine Luza
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 Home addresses and phone numbers will not be published.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 150 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 consideration, time, and support.
Peace, Positivity, Prayers,
Jorge Antonio Vallejos
