Attention before sending  an op-ed / Submission  ?
An op-ed is an opinion essay written by a staff columnist / reader or any outside contributor. It should have a clear point of view or argument supported by specific evidence. It does not represent the opinions of The Good Morning Kashmir — in fact, it may often contradict the opinion of the Post editorial board.
What are the guidelines for op-ed submissions?
Submissions must be limited to 900 words. We consider only completed articles and cannot commit to, or provide guidance on, article proposals. They must include the writer’s full name — anonymous op-eds or op-eds written under pseudonyms will not be considered. They also must include the writer’s home address, e-mail address and Contact  numbers.
How are op-ed contributions selected?
 Good Morning Kashmir receives upwards of  more than  20  unsolicited submissions a day and on most days can accommodate only one outside contribution on the op-ed page and sometimes an additional op-ed online. Submissions are read by editorial page editor Javed Shah , deputy editorial page editor Mir Suhail. 
You don’t need to have special expertise in a topic. But explaining how your background or experience informs your point of view can make for a more effective op-ed. You also don’t need to have an important title .
When will I hear back about my op-ed submission?
We do our best to read all submissions promptly. If you don’t hear from us within a week, it’s safe to assume we won’t be able to use your Submission  .
Are op-eds edited?
All op-eds are edited for clarity and precision of language and for logic of argumentation and organization. They are also fact checked and copy edited for grammar and style .
Are op-eds solicited?
Although we carefully review all unsolicited pieces coming across the transom, we also reach out to people we think might have an interesting opinion on a topic.
