If you’d like to share an opinion column, send offerings to community@therivernewsroom.com. Please include OPINION in the subject line.

Columns should be no longer than 1,000 words and include the author’s email address, Twitter handle if applicable, a brief tagline identifying the author, and an author photo.

We seek fact-based op-eds that focus on issues pertinent to the Hudson Valley and/or Catskills, or that have a particular upstate New York perspective.
