Opinion Article Submission Guidelines
Conversation at the Crossroads welcomes submissions for short, sharp opinion articles that assist in our mission to advance the conversation on the most important social, political, economic and environmental challenges of our time. Published articles will feature on our website and be promoted through social media on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin.
Submission: Send your opinion article via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (also use this address for any questions you have regarding submissions).
Format: Send in a Word document as an attachment, or in the body of your email. Word length: Keep your article in the range of 400-600 words.
Style: Aim for an engaging and conversational style – and express your opinion! Limit acronyms, jargon, passive voice, and do not assume the reader knows the background of your subject.
The lede: Open your article with a provocative question or engaging anecdote.
Do not assume that all of our readers are Australian: While the bulk of our readership is
Australian, we are building our network internationally.
Include a brief biography: Please include 2-3 short sentences about yourself, at the bottom of your submission.
Comment: Readers on both our website and our social media channels will be encouraged to comment on the articles we publish.
Disclaimer: All submissions published on our website will be accompanied with the message, “the views expressed in this article are those of the author and not Conversation
at the Crossroads.”
