Weigh in on important issues to San Diego by submitting a commentary to VOSD. Here are some general guidelines:
The commentary should be no more than 800 words and tied to a story or topic that one of our reporters has recently covered.
We only publish commentaries that are exclusive to VOSD.
We require a real first and last name, as well as a broad area of town where the author lives and/or the author’s official title with relevant organizations.
We’re an online publication so we strongly encourage folks to provide links/documents to studies, reports and other news stories to be included as source links.
To submit your commentary, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
