    My Shots

    My Shots are opinion pieces that must take a stance on an issue — typically starting with a problem, establishing an argument for your stance, then answering with a call to action. The word limit is 600. Please include a short bio at end of the piece and send a head shot. This piece from the New York Times gives good guidance on writing an effective My Shot: Tips for Aspiring Op-Ed Writers.
