Send us an op-ed or pitch an idea for an article or video on issues important to greater Philadelphia and beyond. Reach us at We will respond as soon as possible.

There is no exact length for op-eds that is perfect — it depends on the subject and the argument being made — but a general op-ed submission will fall between 600-900 words in total. But focus more on making a good argument, and less on a specific word count.

If accepted, you will have a chance to review any edits before publication. We’ll¬†promote the essay on our social and email channels — and hope you will share on yours.¬†

All submissions should include a short biography of the writer and a phone number.

Your work is valuable, and we recognize that. Beyond promoting your finalized op-ed or video, we pay our contributors competitively with the market.
