USA TODAY accepts unsolicited opinion pieces for The Forum, its Op-Ed page. Columns typically run 650 to 750 words in length.
Those most likely to be accepted deal in an incisive, compelling way with issues now at the top of the news and, in the case of already well debated topics, present a new perspective. Op-eds dealing directly with specific pieces of legislation are not accepted.
Submissions should be sent to email@example.com as pasted-in text rather than an attachment.
