Feel like having your say on Asian
news? Asia Times Online invites you to take part in
the global conversation by writing an article for our new feature, a guest column that
we call SPEAKING FREELY.
It's our hope that by introducing
this new feature, we'll be able to help keep our website
fresh and vital and important to you, our global
readership. Thus, our main criteria for judging
submissions will be readability, global significance and
the right to publish, edit or reject any submission.
Unfortunately, due to the likely volume, we won't be
able to reply to all who submit articles, so if you
haven't heard back from us within a week, feel free to
take it elsewhere.
Submissions should be
500-1,500 words long and not previously published.
but we're not able to pay for articles
- although you're welcome to
your submission to email@example.com and state in the header
that it is intended for SPEAKING FREELY.
We would prefer that your text is pasted
into the message body, rather than sent as an
attachment. Please also inform us if you wish to
retain copyright to your article.
