Be sure to provide all your contact information in the spaces provided. Many papers will not publish a letter without contacting you first to confirm your identity and some editors may have questions about your letter.
Less is More
A brief yet well stated point makes a great letter to the editor. Be sure to use clear and concise wording. Say what you need to say, just keep it under 250 words. Letters more than 250 words are not likely to be printed. The Telegraph-Herald specifically states it will not publish letters longer than 250 words.
Sometimes it only takes one sentence to make a point that says much, much more.
