Washington, DC–New in 2012, PA TIMES Online now posts twice per week. Every Monday and Thursday PA TIMES Online will publish new original articles. The publication has also released its first ever editorial calendar to further its goal of publishing high quality articles. Intended as a thought starter for potential authors, the calendar hits many of the hottest topics currently being discussed. Authors are encouraged to review the list of topics, however article submissions
need not conform to these topics, particularly if they are addressing a
timely news topic.
Articles must remain between 500-1000 words (unless intended as a multi-part run), contain no references and adhere to the deadlines below. PA TIMES Online generally follows AP style, with some exceptions; see our submission guidelines for more information. Articles submitted with audio/visual elements (ie. photos,
video, podcasts, audio files, charts, graphics, links, etc.) will be
given publication priority. Authors need not be ASPA members. PA TIMES Online will consider ALL original article submissions.

STUDENT VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD
Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders and their voices should be heard. PA TIMES Online would like to create a weekly forum for students.
