Spectator welcomes submissions on any topic relevant to the Columbia University, Morningside Heights, and West Harlem communities. We accept opinion submissions in the form of op-eds and letters to the editor, and also publish columns and staff editorials.

Submit an op-ed: Op-eds should clearly state an opinion and may not have been previously published elsewhere. Pieces should be between about 600-800 words, and may be edited before publication. Email submissions to opinion@columbiaspectator.com.

Submit a letter to the editor: A letter to the editor should be no longer than 350 words and must refer to an article from Spectator or The Eye, or a Spectrum post. Letters may be edited and shortened for space constraints. Submit letters to opinion@columbiaspectator.com.

Opinion columns are written by current Columbia undergraduate students who are selected on a semesterly basis. They represent the opinions of the author in the byline. Columns run once every two weeks and carry a steady theme throughout the semester.
