Each week, The Santa Barbara Independent publishes a handful of letters in our print edition, many more letters online at Independent.com. Op-eds called a “Voice” are also published in both forums, and they are longer, more thought-out, compelling opinion pieces written by individuals who have strong feelings on issues of critical importance to the Santa Barbara community.
Topics: Anything and everything.
Include: Name, address, telephone number. (Only your name and city will be printed.)
Word Count for Letters: 50-250 words
Word Count for Voices: 600-850 words
