Send a Letter to the Editor of your local newspaper


Tips for a strong Letter to the Editor ...

Focus your letter�Shorter is better and generally 200 words are recommended.

Open with a strong statement, and be sure to place the most important information at the beginning. Often, letters are edited to fit the space available�most often they are cut from the bottom up.

Use a personal story or illustration to make your point.

Tie your letter to a recent piece of news, editorial, or a prior letter to the editor, and, if you do so, reference the title and date of the article in your letter. If you are referring to a newspaper article, send your letter as soon as possible after an article has been published in the paper.

In your signature line include your name, daytime and evening telephone numbers, email address, and mailing address so the paper can verify that you wrote the letter. Some editors may write or call to confirm your information. Only your name and city will be published.
