Opinion Submission Guidelines


ecoRI News publishes a variety of opinion pieces from the community on issues that matter to readers, from evergreen debates to newsy discussions related to the environment. While individual commentaries reflect the opinions of their contributors, all content is edited and subject to ecoRI News’ editorial policy.

Opinion pieces should be no longer than 750 words. ecoRI News reserves the right to edit the submission and, if the content is deemed problematic, the right to refuse to publish.

If you’d like to submit an opinion piece, please email editor Bonnie Phillips at [email protected].

Please include a short biography, two sentences at most, to run at the end of your column. If you or a business, trade group or other institution with which you are associated stands to gain financially or in any other way from your column, you should disclose that information to us in detail. In most cases, it should also be included in the body of the piece or in the author’s biographical information.
