- Be brief and focus on one issue. Most newspapers reserve the right to edit letters that are too long.
- Get personal. Relay personal experiences or stories to add a unique, individual touch to your interest in full representation.
- If possible, refer to local events or recent articles that have appeared in the newspaper. Include the date and title of any relevant article or editorial.
- Ask readers to contact their legislators about the issue.
- Give your address and phone number. Most newspapers verify authorship before they print a letter.
