Opinion

Nearly 100 years ago, the small town of Santa Fe, New Mexico, held its first Santa Fe Indian Market. The market, though humble at first, has grown into an economic goliath for the town, drawing an estimated 100,000 people from around the world every year. Over four days each August, the event brings in more than $100 million in revenues to the region.

Submit a My Turn/Letter

Letters should not exceed 250 words, and My Turn columns are limited to 700. Submissions must include the writer’s name, hometown, phone number and a sentence identifying the writer’s credentials, including any jobs or affiliations pertinent to the discussion. 

The Empire will edit submissions for length, clarity, grammar and libelous content. The newspaper does not publish copies of letters sent to third parties. It does not run petitions signed by multiple people on the opinion page; instead it runs opinion pieces by no more than two writers. 

The Empire prints as many letters as possible, but is unable to print all of them. Those that are printed represent the range of letters that are received.

The Empire only publishes one letter or My Turn a month per writer. This ensures that no one monopolizes a discussion. 

The letters, My Turns, syndicated columns, cartoons and guest editorials do not represent the Empire’s views, but those of the writers, artists and newspapers that produced them. 

Send letters and My Turns to editor@juneauempire.com.
