Got an opinion for our new community Op-Ed page?
on May 18, 2010
Hi Oakand North readers,
The Arizona boycott, the gang injunction, the mayor’s race … got an opinion about a local issue? Or just want to share your perspective about life as an Oakland resident? We’d love to hear what you have to say!
Next week, Oakland North will launch our brand new community Op-Ed page, and we’re inviting our readers to contribute essays of approximately 500 – 1,000 words on any Oakland-related topic of community interest. Please send all submissions for consideration to: firstname.lastname@example.org — we’ll choose some to appear on our Op-Ed page.
Oakland North will have the right to edit submissions for length, clarity and spelling/grammar. Please keep essays civil and in good taste — we’re looking for thoughtful first-person opinion pieces, not rants or personal attacks. We hope to hear from you!
Oakland North is an online news service produced by students at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and covering Oakland, California. Our goals are to improve local coverage, innovate with digital media, and listen to you–about the issues that concern you and the reporting you’d like to see in your community. Please send news tips to: email@example.com.
