Florida National News (also abbreviated as FNN NEWS) welcomes submissions of opinion articles for publication online. Submissions must be exclusive to us and will not be accepted if they are longer than 750 words. Please do not submit articles that have been published already elsewhere either in print or online, including blogs.
We do our best to read all articles sent to us promptly, but please understand that we receive many submissions daily. We will endeavor to respond quickly. If the submission is marked for online publication, it will likely receive a quicker response, as we understand timeliness is especially important.
When submitting an op-ed, the article should be included in the body of the e-mail and/or in an attached Microsoft Word document (no PDFs please). It should include a short headline and a tagline identifying the author(s). It should include contact information for the author(s), and at the bottom of the article a one-line bio for each author should be included. In the interest of transparency, the author must disclose any financial or lobbying relations he/she may have with the subjects raised. Please hyperlink all sourcing materials, such as facts, figures and quotations. Please also include a relevant image with a minimum resolution of 400 x 400 pixels,
There are many factors that go into our decision to publish or not. Relevance and timeliness are obviously significant, but so too are the quality of writing and the quality of thinking. Further, you may have submitted an excellent op-ed but we may have published something similar recently. Be sure to carefully peruse our site prior to submitting your content.
Please avoid inundating us with follow-up e-mails or phone calls. You may republish an article we have published, but it must credit Florida National News and indicate that it was first published by us.
