CII welcomes submissions of opinion articles on any topic relevant to the people of Connecticut. Submissions must be exclusive to us and should be between 550-800 words. We do not consider articles sent to other publications or posted online, including on a personal blog, nor do we consider anonymous or pseudonymous submissions.

We consider only completed articles and do not provide guidance on ideas or proposals. Many factors affect whether an opinion article is suitable for publication, including space constraints, timeliness, relevance, and compliance with Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. You don’t need to have any special expertise to have your op-ed considered for publication, though if you do, please let us know what qualifications set you apart in your submission email.

CII reserves the right to make editorial changes and will communicate any adjustments before publication. Our organization is a Section 501(c)(3) and some changes may be necessary to comply with the guidelines provided by the Internal Revenue Service and State of Connecticut.

To submit an op-ed, email with the text of your op-ed in line, we will not open attachments.
