Eugene Weekly exists to boldly question prevailing wisdom and authority. We expose corporate practices and public policies that benefit the few at the expense of the many. We provide a voice for the oppressed and dismissed, and support unfettered artistic expression. As informed citizens, we carry a responsibility for community leadership. We advocate aggressively for environmental sanity, government accountability, sustainable economics, social justice, cultural diversity, tolerance, and the lively, free interchange of ideas and opinions. We also seek to provide employment, training and a supportive work environment for Eugene’s most creative writers, artists, photographers, graphic designers, salespeople, office workers and managers.
Call 541-484-0519 to talk to anyone from EW.
For news tips contact Editor Camilla Mortensen with a detailed message specifying exactly what the possible news story is. You can also contact Camilla Mortensen for Slant tips, Happening People and to submit an editorial viewpoint.
Letters to the editor should be less than 250 words, preferably 200 words, and sent to email@example.com along with your address and phone number or valid contact information to verify who you are. We welcome letters on all topics and will print as many as space allows, though do we exercise discretion over what we print in our pages while retaining the voice of community members. Letters will be copy edited for grammar and spelling and check for factual accuracy when possible. We give priority given to timely local issues, responses to articles and letters in EW and letters received before Friday at 5 pm. While critiques are welcome, letters should avoid personal attacks and hate speech is not tolerated. Please send your letter in the body of your email. For those who prefer not to use email, fax to 541-484-4044 or mail to 1251 Lincoln, Eugene 97401. We recognize there many people EW and the community need to hear from who do not have access to a computer, and encourage you to write to us, just know that if we have to re-type your letter for you, it may slightly delay publication.
Send guest viewpoints to firstname.lastname@example.org and check out some tips for writing them here. Please note, EW like most newspapers, does not pay freelance fees for opinion pieces.

SOCIAL MEDIA COMMENTS POLICY
The goal of Eugene Weekly‘s comments section is to provide substantive conversation in the Eugene-Springfield and Lane County community and surrounding areas. We hope that comments will draw together insightful, active and civil discussions among EW’s readers, writers, reporters and editors.
We do not delete comments because we disagree with them. Only comments that violate these guidelines will be deleted by EW staffers.
Please note, we do not control Facebook’s comments or spam policies.
By submitting content, you are consenting to the following guidelines:
• Do not make inappropriate comments, including content that is illegal, violent, libelous, defamatory or pornographic.
• Do not make comments degrading others on the basis of gender, race, class, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability or other classification.
• Do not threaten, intimidate or harass other commenters or writers/editors.
• Do not post misinformation.
• Do not advertise or solicit in our comment section.
• Do not dox (publish private or identifying information about other people with malicious intent).
Comments that are on-topic or related to the article at hand receive more leeway than unrelated comments. We are unlikely to allow comments that derail the conversation or deter other commenters with their vitriol.
Stay on topic, stay civil and always feel free to write a letter to the editor. Send your maximum of 250 word letters to email@example.com with your name and address for verification. If you’d like to voice your opinion more privately or send us a news tip, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
