Write to Your Newspaper

 
WHY?

  • It is the second most widely read section of the newspaper.
  • Most newspapers are eager to receive letters from the public.
  • It is a quick, inexpensive way to reach a wide audience.
  • It is a good way of gaining support from others.
  • It makes communicating with the general public easier.
 
TIPS
  • Short, simple letters to the editor are the most effective (letters that are too long will be edited, and you won’t be able to control the content).
  • Double-space your text.
  • Above your text, write “Letter to the editor”.
  • If you are responding to an article you read, specify its title and publication date.
  • Adopt a writing style that is similar to the spoken word.
  • Avoid getting into personal debates with journalists, opponents or politicians.
  • Go over your text and rewrite passages as needed.
  • Write your name and contact information at the bottom of the letter (they will not be published, but the editors may wish to contact you for clarification).
  • Write the letter from your own perspective, and in your own name.
  • Send it to your local paper, and call them to see if it will be published.
  • It’s worth sending your letter to several newspapers, or even translating it.
  • Ask other people to send letters on the same subject to emphasize your message’s importance.
