SPREADING THE WORD:
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Tips For Writing a Letter to the Editor
Keep it short: most newspapers prefer letters that are between 100-200 words.
Make it personal: aim to put things in your own words and draw from your own experiences.
Be accurate: make sure you’ve got your facts straight.
Try to be unique. People are tired of stale political talking points.
Make sure to proofread: the last thing you want are grammatical or spelling mistakes.
Submitting Your Letter
When you submit your letter, include your name, home address, email address, and daytime phone number, as some publications may call you for verification. Feel free to submit to more than one newspaper.
