Letters to the editor
If the reader has a question or concern with the content published, they* are encouraged to write a letter to the editor. A staff response is only appropriate when a fact needs to be clarified. It is the policy of El Estoque to allow the reader to have the last word. Letters of any length should be submitted by email to [email protected] or by mail to El Estoque Editorial Board, 21840 McClellan Rd., Cupertino, CA 95014. They become the sole property of El Estoque and may be edited for length, clarity or accuracy. Letters cannot be returned and will be published on the platform in which the letter is tailored to if possible.

Errors/Corrections/Take down requests
El Estoque must always strive for the highest standards of accuracy, completeness and careful research in its presentation of material. In the case that inaccurate material is published, the staff will assume responsibility for the error and correct it as soon as possible. If the reader believes such an error has been made, they* are encouraged to contact the respective reporter. We will correct any factual or source representation errors and document the date and time the correction was posted at the bottom of the story or in the next issue of the magazine. El Estoque typically does not take down stories that are factually accurate.

El Estoque will accept advertisements submitted with a signed contract and full payment providing they do not advocate illegal activity for minors or are deemed by the Editorial Board racist, sexist or otherwise inappropriate for El Estoque’s audience. Advertisements may be rejected due to space limitations, though El Estoque is obligated by law to provide equal space for advertisements representing opposing viewpoints.

Interested businesses have the option of advertising both in print and online. The print edition gets directly into the hands of 1,200 students on campus and the website receives approximately 3,000 unique hits per week, so it’s a valuable place to reach out to the young members of our community and their families. The advertising contract for 2021-22 can be found here. For business inquiries, please contact [email protected].
