Write a Letter-to-the-editor
Follow this short guide to submit a letter-to-the-editor about gun responsibility to your local paper!
- Determine your local outlet.
- Find out the outlet-specific requirements for length and content on the paper’s website.
- Word limit – most papers have a 200-250 word limit.
- Contact email or address – Find out where or to whom you send the LTE. Each newspaper is a little different.
- Read recent LTEs published in the outlet to get an idea of what has recently been discussed and what editors are looking for.
- Write and submit! You might not know if your letter will be published until you see it in print.
