What You Should Know Before Writing an Op-Ed

Most of big newspapers want an exclusive with your piece. That means they don't want you to send it around to other editors. They expect you to allow them to look it over for several days.

Make sure you include your name, address, home phone. Explain why you have expertise in the area and your title in any relevant organizations. Expertise doesn't have to me an academic degree. Eyewitness information is often just as good.

Usually papers want op-eds to be about some issue in the news rather than a response to an article in that newspaper.

Don't get lost in statistics. Most people (even editors) can only handle a few. Just mention the most dramatic. Know your audience. You can't write for the Boston Globe like you would write for a left with listserv. If you can get across one or two points to expand the minds of thousands of people it's a lot better than an essay that lets it all out on the line but is rejected by the editor. Show emotion but keep it under control.
