**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. Though space is limited in print copies of The Oracle, story submissions for online-only publication are always welcome!

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 the editor of the section the article is assigned in. Articles that were not assigned to a specific section may be emailed to the editor-in-chief. (For a list of editor’s emails, please visit our E-board page).

Pitches

The Oracle is always welcome to and accepting story pitches from SUNY New Paltz students. In your pitch, please include your name, year, major, intended topic and length, how you 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. Please email all pitches to the Editor-in-Chief. 

Other Submissions 

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 to the editor-in-chief. In your email, please provide any transcripts of interviews and contact info for sources used in the story if needed, for fact-checking purposes.
