You DO NOT need to be a member of The Daily’s staff or even a Stanford affiliate to submit content of any type to The Daily. (Though we do accept all eligible applicants to join if you apply here.)
We are happy to consider editing and publishing your work (not limited to written work), and there are tons of ways you can submit!
See various outside submission options below, and remember you can always reach out to [email protected] to ask about another form of submission. We look forward to hearing from you!
- Tips (for when you want to send us ideas, information and/or feedback)
- Letters to the Editor (for when you want to publicly respond to existing work in and/or by The Daily)
- Op-eds (for when you want to share your opinion on an issue relevant to the Stanford community and/or any of its members)
- Personal essays/reflections/rants (any thoughts you have!) See The Grind for examples, but don’t limit yourself to those topics.
- Any other writings or projects (such as arts reviews, news pieces, audio/visual work, data work, etc. you want published in The Daily)
Option 1. Tips — submitted using this form.
Maybe you aren’t interested in contributing work to The Daily, but you do want to share information about a topic The Daily could cover. This can be information about yourself (such as a past or ongoing experience) or information you have heard/observed. We’re interested in anything, and you can submit tips anonymously!
Option 2. Letters to The Editor — sent to [email protected].
A Letter to The Editor can be sent to The Daily by any member of our audience who would like to have their letter published. Letters should be in some way related to a matter of concern to our audience, and are often in response to content The Daily has recently published.
The Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to accept or reject any letter received. The sender(s) will receive a reason if the letter is rejected, and they are welcome to submit another letter if desired.
Option 3. Op-Eds — sent to [email protected].
An op-ed is a written piece that expresses the opinion of one or more authors who are not affiliated with The Daily’s editorial staff.
Op-ed submissions are evaluated and edited by The Daily’s opinions editors. Anyone can submit an op-ed to [email protected] on a topic relevant to the Stanford community. Due to high volume of submissions, the opinions staff is unable to respond to all emails.
Option 4. Personal narratives — sent to [email protected] or this form.
We want to read your work and consider it for publication!
Any reflections, ideas, rantings, musings, etc. can be submitted using the form above to reach our editors at The Grind, who will contact you regarding publication.
If your piece is more argumentative rather than reflective, you may want to consider submitting it to our Opinions section instead.
Option 5. Content for another section of The Daily — sent to that section’s email (see list below).
We are happy to consider editing and publishing content contributed by people who are not members of The Daily’s staff.
An example would be a piece written for a course or research project at Stanford that the author would like published in The Daily as well. Other examples include personal projects like blogs or pieces of art.
Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions about potential submissions.
