Get your letter published in the local newspapers

A newspaper's Letters to the Editor section is one of the last public forums where citizens can voice their concerns about government, elected officials or the state of their communities. A published letter is also an invaluable tool to further the Democratic Platform.

  • The most important thing to remember when writing a letter to your newspaper is to keep it simple.
  • Letters should be around 300 words.
  • Focus on one issue and cut to the chase.
  • Construct short, punchy sentences grouped in two or three paragraphs.
  • Don't be afraid to be witty, but keep it in good taste.
  • It is always a good idea to refer to an article in the newspaper to which you are writing. Editors love to see that their newspaper articles are provoking dialog within the community. When referring to an article, include the headline of the story and the date it was published; example: (Eyman admits to lying, Feb. 4). But under no circumstances should you personally attack the reporter or columnist who wrote the story. Attack their views instead.
  • Make sure to include your name, address and phone number. If a newspaper staff can't verify the author, they won't print it.
