Since 2000, we’ve reserved a spot on our Monday opinion page for contributions from a selected panel of four to six local reader columnists. Now it’s time to invite readers to apply for our 2011 roster of guest writers.

We are looking for contributors who represent the geographic and ethnic diversity of South Sound residents – urban, suburban and rural, young, old and in between. These columns must be personal or community-oriented, and based on firsthand experience or observation. Leave musings on national issues to our syndicated columnists.

To apply, readers should submit two freshly written sample columns (not previously written material), each 600 to 700 words. Include a cover letter telling us a bit about yourself. The deadline is Monday.
