Tips for writing letters to the editor


Try to link your letter to the date and title of a story previously appearing in the paper.
Deal with one topic and have one major message.
Put the main point at the beginning and progressively less important details towards the end.
Be brief (350 words max) and specific.
Use a straightforward, factual approach - not sarcasm.
Include your name, address and day phone number - staff may call if they're interested.
Try to submit within 48 hours (for dailies) of the article you're responding to.
Get your mother (or anyone who cares about your reputation) to check the letter.
