Uken Report will accept opinion pieces that offer new insights and thoughtful arguments on primarily local issues although pieces that address state and national issues will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Pieces should be limited to 500 words and are subject to editing.

All submissions should include the author’s full name, occupation, city of residence, email and phone number. Your email address only will be published with the submission.

All submissions must include a high-resolution photo.

Submissions will only be considered if they are submitted exclusively to Uken Report.

Some of the more provocative, thoughtful and well-written submissions could be posted on the editor’s Facebook page.

Hateful, racist, bigoted submissions will not be accepted. Submissions must also be free from libel.
