Have patience

We try to response at earliest once receive a piece or a pitch. However, being a small team, we may take time to response in some occasions. All pitches and submissions made to Northeast Opinion are considered by the editorial team, and are read by more than one editor.

We also request writers to avoid sending their pieces  to multiple places as it creates confusion for us whether  to process a particular piece or not.
