What a year — alternative facts; marches and protests; Russia; “covfefe”; catastrophic hurricanes; and a sexual-misconduct tsunami.
And what will 2018 bring? A better plan to end homelessness? Where will Amazon build its HQ2? Will President Donald Trump’s staff start to hide his phone?
Submit the 2018 headlines you wish would appear in The Seattle Times — realistic, hopeful or tongue-in-check. On New Year’s Day, the Opinion section will publish the best headlines from readers alongside those our staff would like to see in 2018. Think creatively and have some fun with your predictions.
The three best headlines, as judged by our staff, will win Seattle Times swag, including a $50 restaurant gift card for the top winner. Submit up to two headlines online by Dec. 22 at, or send an email: with the subject “2018 headline contest.”
