What is an Editorial?

Most editorial pieces take the form of an essay or thesis, using arguments to promote a specific point of view of the writer. Editorial pages are considered to be a writer's specific opinion on a specific topic - and may or may not be biased.

What is an Op-ed?

An op-ed (originally short for "opposite the editorial page" though sometimes interpreted as "opinion editorial") is a written piece typically published by a newspaper or magazine which expresses the opinion of a named author usually not affiliated with the publication editorial board.

Op-eds are different from both editorials - (opinion pieces submitted by editorial board members) - and letters to the editor - (opinion pieces submitted by readers).
