We want to hear your voice. Our new Voices section is a forum for your ideas, opinions and writing.
It's about the things that matter to Vancouver Island and the world beyond. It could be serious or light and bright. A reflection of this amazing community in which we all live.
Send your submissions to [email protected].
Please attach a photo of yourself, your phone number and, if you like, a photo to illustrate your submission.
Try to keep the length to about 500 words if possible - but there's no hard minimum or maximum number of words.
Over the next few months we hope to include as many of your articles as possible.
Be brave. Be creative. This is your forum - and we want to hear from you.
