Most newspapers and media outlets prefer original letters that are written in your own words and detail how you and your family are personally affected by current issues.

Shorter letters of 250 words or less are highly effective and are most likely to be read and replied to by letters-to-the-editor readers.

Here are some tips and talking points for your letter:

  • Be brief, clear, and to the point. Editors often limit letters to 250 words or less.
  • Be passionate about the issues and candidates you care about.
  • Be courteous; rudeness and sarcasm don’t come across well.
  • Be sure to provide contact information; anonymous letters are rarely printed.
  • Always include your daytime phone number.
