My Shot

My Shots are essentially our version of an Op-ed. These opinion pieces are either submitted to the paper, then vetted and edited by the opinion editor, or solicited based on our desires for hitting certain topics. My Shots are Moonshine Ink 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.

Word limit for a traditional My Shot is 600 words, and as of 2021 we are accepting longer (1,000 word count limit) submissions on a case-by-case basis. Email editors@moonshineink.com to submit yours!
