Seven Secrets of Writing Letters to the Editor
- Shorter is better. Get to the point quickly. Aim for about 100-150 words.
- Make it compelling. Grab the reader in the first sentence with something provocative or entertaining.
- End with an image. Create a metaphor that visually sticks in the reader’s mind.
- Don’t make your letter too long.You only have a few words.
- Put passion into your words. If you feel strongly about something, let those emotions show.
- Proof your copy for spelling and grammar mistakes.
- And, most importantly, make sure the facts you cite are accurate!
