New England Public Media airs and publishes commentaries from local people during Morning Edition and All Things Considered. We look for contributors in the region whose views will be of continuing interest and value to New England Public Media’s listeners — from the Berkshires to Worcester, Hartford to Brattleboro, and all points between.

Experts in a particular field who have an informed perspective on events in the news — whether local, national or international — are wanted. We also seek people with knowledge of local civics, culture and history, with an eye on little-known but fascinating elements of the regional experience. And we seek non-experts who by virtue of their thoughtfulness broaden or deepen our understanding of the world we live in.

Please email submissions to our commentary editor at commentaries@nepm.org.

Commentator Jenny Hubbard lost her 6-year-old daughter Catherine in the tragedy. Hubbard says those parents who sued Jones have her unwavering support — but she chose not to join them in the lawsuit.
