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.

This is Your Voice

Remember, you have the right to speak and be heard! Take pride in you letter and make the most of your opportunity to advocate whatever is on your mind.

Focus on relevant issues in the news, particularly those that were recently published in the paper you are writing.  If possible, cite a specific article or letter you are responding to. The more recent your topic made news the more likely you are to be published.
