You Sound Off!
October 14, 2011 by Bob Livingston
I want to introduce a new Personal Liberty Digest™ feature that will appear the last Wednesday of each month beginning Oct. 26. And the great thing about it is, to make it work, I need your help.
We have some very intelligent readers, as evidenced by some of the comments that appear each day. So we’re giving you a better opportunity to contribute beyond the constraints of our comment system. We’re calling our new feature “You Sound Off!” It’s a chance to contribute to PLD in either the form of a letter to the editor or an article.
The format is simple. You pick the topic. It can be a response to something you’ve seen on Personal Liberty, a subject you think needs attention, a suggestion for something we should be doing differently, or any other topic. We ask that you limit your submissions to no more than 750 words (if they are much longer, we probably won’t read them). Our staff will select the one or two we think are the best of the week, and those will be published on the last Wednesday. We reserve the right to edit for grammar and style but will try not to alter the meaning.
Agree with us? Fine. Disagree? Even better. Just make your argument cogently. No libel. Don’t plagiarize. Just state your case. But make it good, because the competition will be stiff.
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, address and telephone number (only your name will be published) so we can contact you if we need to clarify something. Anonymous submissions will not be considered.
Get those creative juices flowing. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait.
