Any open story assignments at this meeting are available for interested writers to claim.**

**Due to the fluctuating number of stories from week to week, there is no guarantee that a great variety of stories will be available to contributors at the time of the meeting. The Oracle can only publish so many articles per issue.

Deadlines for submissions by contributors are Sunday at 7 p.m. unless otherwise stated by the editor that assigned the article.

Articles must be submitted via e-mail to oracle@newpaltz.edu. Articles that were not assigned by an editor, or those articles that have been turned in late, are not guaranteed for publication.

Furthermore, The Oracle accepts pitches – by SUNY New Paltz students only. Included with the pitch must be the student’s name, year, major, intended topic and length, how they plan to report and why it should be of interest to the student body. Pitches will be accepted solely at the discretion of the editor-in-chief.

If you have written an article for a class that you would like to submit to The Oracle for publication, please attach the story in an email and be able to provide contact info for sources from the story if needed, for fact-checking purposes.
