All newspapers encourage letters and the editorial page is often one of the most widely read and talked about sections of the newspaper. You can submit your letter by mail, or in most cases, by e-mail, which many newspapers prefer. You can find the contact information in the same section that the letters appear.
- Brevity-- short, crisp sentences that lead directly to the point of the letter will get your letter noticed.
- Letters should be no more than 200-300 words.
- Avoid a negative tone in your letter. While some editors will put in letters that create a little controversy, it will not reflect positively on our efforts.
- If you are officially representing IDF, you will need to have your letter approved by IDF in advance.
