WRITING Letters To The Editor tips
People read LTE’s to find out:
How local people think or feel about an issue
How an issue affects their community
People do not read LTE’s for:
In-depth policy talk.
National political debates.
Keep it short – get to the point.
Tell your human story by describing how the issue affects you or someone you know.
Avoid a long string of dull facts.
Use powerful language that expresses your feelings, in short sentences of various lengths.
End your letter with a specific call to action to your local lawmakers or community members.
Ask a friend to proof read for proper grammar and spelling.
