In light of Sunday's mass shooting at Pulse, Orlando Weekly will be offering free obituaries for all victims of this senseless tragedy. 

Obituaries need to be submitted by Thursday, June 16, in order to be in our June 22 issue. However, if for some reason this deadline is missed, we'll run it in the June 29 issue. 

Word count should be under or close to 200 words, and high-resolution photos are also allowed. 

Please contact Jerrica Schwartz at jschwartz@orlandoweekly.com for further information. 

We welcome readers to submit letters regarding articles and content in Orlando Weekly. Letters should be a minimum of 150 words, refer to content that has appeared on Orlando Weekly, and must include the writer's full name, address, and phone number for verification purposes. No attachments will be considered. Writers of letters selected for publication will be notified via email. Letters may be edited and shortened for space.

Email us at feedback@orlandoweekly.com.
