Vashon Loop Editorial Guidelines

The Vashon Loop’s Editorial Team asks content writers to keep the following guidelines in mind.

Our Prime Directive is to create a community paper that safeguards our shared values of honest inquiry and critical thinking. Positive experiences are the goal, especially when touching upon challenging topics. We seek content that is enjoyable, surprising, reassuring, meaningful, informative, and that inspires practical actions. Let your content encourage the respectful discourse of diverse experiences and viewpoints amongst Islanders.

Our Editorial Team views a winning idea as one which, by its own virtue, rises above the rest. The modern media space is defined by a glut of negative coverage. We are intentionally setting policy that exposes concerns, while promoting solution-oriented discussion and the elevation of good, great and even better ideas.

We publish both invited and unsolicited content. If you have an idea for a story or column you would like to write for The Loop, please contact us directly to share your ideas.

Content published in The Loop will be ethical, legal, and non-violent.
Thank you for your interest in contributing to the Loop!
