LETTERS TO THE EDITOR (BACK TALK)

Include your name and town for publication and your phone number for verification, and put "Back Talk" in the subject line. We reserve the right to edit letters for length, style and clarity. Please note that we do not publish general letters to the editor; Back Talk is limited to feedback about INDY Week articles.

FRONT PORCH

Front Porch runs every week. Essays should be 500 words maximum. This is the place for reflections on life, politics, recent local events and other topics of community interest. Humor is always appreciated. Sad is occasionally OK. Musings on your own life without a larger point, or essays with a majority of sentences that open with the personal pronoun, not so much.

Submissions are not necessarily acknowledged or returned. Please note that we do not pay for reader-submitted Front Porch essays. Email submissions to frontporch@indyweek.com. Include your name, phone number and mailing address for verification, and put "Front Porch" in the subject line.

FIRST PERSON

First Person is an occasional feature; it does not run every week. Submissions should be 800-1,400 words and tell a true story about a personal experience. First Person essay submissions longer than 1,400 words will not be considered. Preference is given to pieces that offer a firsthand view of topics in the news with broad community interest. Submissions must be nonfiction; poetry and fiction will not be considered.

Submissions are not necessarily acknowledged or returned. Please note that we do not pay for reader-submitted First Person essays. Email submissions to lsorg@indyweek.com. Include your name, phone number and mailing address for verification, and put "First Person" in the subject line. First Person is edited by Editor Lisa Sorg.
