Letters to the editors of our local and regional publications tell our community where we stand on key issues and what we believe in and value. To write an effective letter to the editor, keep these points in mind:
- Keep it short.
- Get to the point.
- Provide verifiable facts and data if possible.
- Remain civil and rational.
- Follow the publication’s specific rules about how to submit, how often to submit, and how to identify yourself.
EXAMPLES OF LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
