Write a Letter-to-the-editor

Follow this short guide to submit a letter-to-the-editor about gun responsibility to your local paper!

  1. Determine your local outlet.
  2. Find out the outlet-specific requirements for length and content on the paper’s website.
  3. Word limit – most papers have a 200-250 word limit.
  4. Contact email or address – Find out where or to whom you send the LTE. Each newspaper is a little different.
  5. Read recent LTEs published in the outlet to get an idea of what has recently been discussed and what editors are looking for.
