The Idaho Statesman (Sunday) - - OPINION -


Who writes opin­ions? The States­man runs sev­eral kinds of opin­ion pieces aimed at in­form­ing read­ers and en­gag­ing the com­mu­nity in a con­ver­sa­tion. We la­bel these pieces for clar­ity: Opin­ion, Guest Opin­ion and Ed­i­to­rial Board Opin­ion. Our ed board opin­ions rep­re­sent the con­sen­sus view of the pub­lisher, opin­ion page ed­i­tor and a large group of vol­un­teer com­mu­nity mem­bers. The board is made up of peo­ple rep­re­sent­ing a mix of ages, gen­ders and po­lit­i­cal lean­ings. Opin­ion con­tent is not cre­ated or writ­ten by news­room jour­nal­ists, whose job it is to cover the news in un­bi­ased fash­ion.

WANT YOUR SAY? We ac­cept let­ters/opin­ions that in­clude an ad­dress and day­time tele­phone num­ber for ver­i­fi­ca­tion.

Let­ters: 200-word limit, one let­ter per writer ev­ery 30 days. Let­ters en­dors­ing can­di­dates or ini­tia­tives will be lim­ited to 100 words dur­ing elec­tion pe­ri­ods. Most let­ters will be pub­lished on­line and the ma­jor­ity in print. The States­man does not print form let­ters, li­belous let­ters, busi­ness pro­mo­tions or com­plaints, po­etry or open let­ters. .

Guest Opin­ions: lim­ited to 500 words, one ev­ery three months per writer. Guest Opin­ions are se­lected to fur­ther ex­plore top­ics of broad in­ter­est. Pri­or­ity is given to Idaho au­thors who have unique knowl­edge or ex­per­tise on a sub­ject, and to re­but­tals of re­cent States­man ed­i­to­ri­als. Sub­mis­sions we ac­cept will re­quire a jpg photo of the au­thor and a sen­tence de­scrib­ing the au­thor.

All let­ters and Guest Opin­ions re­flect the opin­ions of the writer. All sub­mis­sions are sub­ject to edit­ing for clar­ity, length and taste.
