Email subject: TIMELY opinion piece: SUM UP THE ARGUMENT HERE

Hi X,

I hope you’re doing well?

On the back of the news of X, I would like to write an opinion piece on SUM UP THE ARGUMENT HERE

In the piece I would address the below points: 

  • X
  • X
  • X
  • X

I believe I am best placed to write this piece because X and X. I could get copy to by X and I am around TODAY/TOMORROW for any edits 

IF APPLICABLE, INCLUDE: Please note, given the timeliness of this piece, I have sent it to other editors so would appreciate your quick response./Please note, given the timeliness of this piece, I am offering you first refusal but will pitch elsewhere should I not hear from you by X TIME. 

Let me know if this could be of interest, or if I could tweak the premise in any way to suit you. If this doesn’t work for you on this occasion, I would also like to put myself forward as an expert on X, X and X, in case you are ever in need of comment on these issues.
