Letters to the editor
Letters to the editor policy
Letters to the editor are a critical part of the community dialogue, and the Pine Journal makes every effort to publish all letters of opinion, as long as they meet our requirements.
Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be submitted exclusively to the Pine Journal.
Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility.
Letter writers aren’t allowed more than one published submission every 30 days.
With rare exceptions, the Pine Journal does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters; or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns, even if they’re signed by local people.
We will consider exclusive Local View columns of no more than 600 words. Authors should possess unique insights and their commentaries greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
