Guest Contributor Week: An open call for op-ed pieces

We’ve long held the opinion that if we’re going to cover this community right, we’d need your support.
Now, we’re adding a second act to an actionable call for that very cause.
In August, we called for folks to submit coverage of events that we can’t make. As a staff of three, there’s just too much going on to do it all. And we hope that we begin to see more submissions on the city’s weekly technology happenings.
Today, we’re announcing that we’re accepting opinion pieces from our audience, with the hopes that issues that we’re unable to cover can be better brought to the forefront. We further believe that these submissions can inspire more in-depth coverage as we continue to expand our editorial perspective with the help of the community.
To kick it off, we’ve solicited a few folks in the community to write some initial contributions, which will be published throughout the week, hoping it will help provide a scope of what we would like to see and to encourage others to participate in the dialogue.
Our decision to accept these submissions is inspired by many of the off-the-record conversations we have with leaders in Philadelphia. We’ve spoken enthusiastically to the frustrated or inspired. But much of the time, because we’re a news organization founded in fact and not opinion, we’ve been unable to air important commentary.
Pieces should be from 150 to 500 words in length and should include a relevant photo and a headshot of the author if possible. We’re looking for distinct opinions or points of view that have relevance to our community and our coverage and we will be closely reviewing pieces that appear to be advertisements for companies and individuals.
Submissions will be vetted and edited by Technically Philly staff, but we’ll work closely with contributors to ensure the message is published as intended. To submit a piece, please email info@technicallyphilly.com, and we’ll be with you as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance for helping Philadelphia’s technology community shine.
