We’ve been toying with accepting and publishing “Letters to the Editor” for a while now. And we’re happy to announce we are (slowly) unrolling this feature. These “Letters to the Editor” will offer a glimpse into what community members think about particular issues that we are (or should be) covering. What better way to be community connected?

We ask that you be patient with us as we continuously revise our parameters, submission instructions, word limit, etc.

Submissions should be short and sweet — literally, fairly short and as civil as possible. While it will not be published, we require a valid email address and phone number for contact and verification purposes.  Letters will include your full name and town when posted online.

We will only publish a few unique perspective letters at a time about a particular issue and these issues should be those that we have already covered or are emerging local issues.  We also reserve the editorial discretion to limit, edit and ultimately publish only those letters that best fit the interests of our readers

And, lastly, we are only able to get to those letters we get to. We apologize if you do not hear from us directly or if your letter is not published.  Our current scale and format does not yet allow us to publish an unlimited number of letters.

We are so appreciative of all our supportive readers and are introducing this feature so that we can continue our mission of fostering a connected community. To reach us please use the “contact us” form. Here’s a link!
