We’ve got some exciting news- we now have a one-stop shot for writing letters to the editor. Check it out here.

Never written a letter to the editor? It’s easy. Check out these helpful tips:

  • Most newspapers will only print original letters. Use talking points and sample letters as a starting point for your own message.
  • You’re more likely to get published if your letter is angled as a “response” to a news piece or opinion piece recently published. If it fits, do it. If not, don’t worry about it.
  • Letters with a personal angle are always compelling. Ask yourself how an issue affects you and your family.
  • Keep it brief and to the point. Letters under 250 words are much more likely to be published, and they’ll probably cut material anyways.
