Letter To The Editor

If you are going to write a letter to the editor, include your full name, city, state, and phone number, as newspaper editors will want to call you to confirm your submission.

Tips & Tricks To Get Published

  • If referencing a previously published item, include the title and date it ran so the editor and readers will understand where you are coming from. If possible, submit your letter within 24 hours of when the piece was published.
  • Be concise. Keep it short but meaningful. Most newspapers have a word limit. The shorter your letter, the greater the likelihood that it will get published.
  • Bge direct, clear, and simple. Keep your sentences and paragraphs short and easy to follow. Do not use long, flowery words that require the average reader to grab a dictionary.  Write like you would talk.
  • Have fun.  Stand out by playing with words, using irony, or being witty. Use sarcasm, but be careful not to be mean. Be respectful adn don't make personal attacks.
  • Be creative. Stay away from cliches and well-known puns
  • Personalize. Personal experiences and stories strenghten your argument and make it more interesting.
  • Double-check your facts.  Support those facts by directing readers to find out more.
  • Do it! Write your letter and submit it before the newspapers' readers forget about the issue.
