Writing a letter to the editor is a great way to share your opinion on articles, reports or editorials published in a newspaper or magazine. Whether the issues are local or national in scope, the editors are looking for timely, well thought out responses to what appears in their publications. Some newspapers literally receive thousands of letters a day. To improve your chances of getting published here are a few tips that you may find helpful.
  • Make reference to the subject
    Mention the article or the editorial. (we provide a subject box in our template)
  • Keep the letter focused
    Gather your thoughts and keep it on one subject. Too many points will reduce the impact
  • Make it stand on its own
    It should make sense to people that have not read the original article
  • Keep it original
    Publications want original submissions. So, no mass mailings. If you believe your letter is likely to be printed, you may choose the seven day delay option for posting on this site.
  • Make it general and prose only
    Do not send poetry, thank you or other correspondence of a personal nature.
  • Keep it short
    Most publications limit the letters to 150 to 250 words ( the limit on this site is 300 words)
  • Make it quick
    News goes stale very quickly. So submit your letter as quickly as possible.
  • No attachments.
    Most publications do not allow attached documents (the built in template on this site allows you to submit directly)
  • Mention credentials.
  • If you have relevant job title, unique experience or expertise, mention it.
  • Include your full contact information
    Most newspapers and magazines, if they are to print your letter, will contact you before publication to verify information and discuss content. Without your contact information it is extremely unlikely that your letter will be printed. Normally, no one from this site will contact you prior to publication on this site. Letters published on this site will mention only your name; comments following letters will also have only your name or, if you so choose, your screen name.
