Berkeleyside welcomes submissions of opinion pieces, which we publish at our discretion. They must be fact-based, with links and citations to substantiate arguments. We generally do not publish items that have appeared elsewhere and ask for two weeks’ exclusivity. If you do not hear back, assume we have decided to pass.
