Writing a Letter to the Editor or Opinion Article

  • Decide which response is best.
    Letters to the editor are short and concise, generally under 125 words in length. Opinion articles tend to be longer (up to 250 words) and are often authored by community and business leaders, policymakers and scholars.

  • Be brief and specific.
    State your purpose for writing at the beginning of your response. If your response pertains to a previously published article or editorial, refer to it specifically. It’s best to stay focused on one topic, especially for letters to the editor. Remember to keep your letters to the appropriate length.

  • Stick to the facts.
    Referring to documented studies and statistics in your letter will enhance its effect, but don't overdo it. Only make statements you can back up with hard facts and avoid personal attacks and insults.

Submitting a Letter to the Editor or Opinion Article

  • Be timely.
    When responding to articles or editorials, submit your response within two to three days. When writing a less specific article, submit it when the topic appears pertinent to the issues the newspaper is covering.

  • Publications often verify authorship.
    Include your name, address and telephone number when submitting your article.

  • Address your letter or opinion article to “Dear Editor.”
    Check the opinion page of the newspaper (either in the print edition or on the newspaper’s Web site) for the appropriate e-mail, fax or mailing address for sending your letter or opinion article. Also check to see if the newspaper has any specific guidelines for submitting responses.

  • Do not be discouraged if your letter is not published.
    Most publications receive more letters than they can print. Unpublished letters are still read by the editors and can help them determine which topics should receive more attention.
