Submit An Opinion Column

Interested in having your voice heard across the island?

If you like to write about local topics, you’re welcome to submit an opinion column/letter to the editor, giving you the opportunity to share your views on the island’s leading digital media source.

Your letter may cover any one of a range of topics — including politics, local happenings, sports, entertainment, the arts, the economy — if have a well-written opinion on any local topic at all, we’d like to share it with our readers.

Articles typically run from 400 to 1,200 words, but submissions of any length and on any topic will be considered, and can also incorporate any multimedia you may like, such as videos, PDFs, audio clippings, and more.

While we will consider any column, your writing has a better chance of being printed if it is original, and exclusive to Bernews.

All columns must be signed by the writer’s full name; anonymous columns will not be accepted and, while we will in special circumstances, we generally don’t solicit polemics. Please note that opinion columns may edited for accuracy, clarity, length or other reasons, and our discretion is final.

To submit your opinion column, please email us at and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
