Letters to the Editor and Guest Column guidelines

Letters to the editor are a critical part of the community dialogue, and the Pine Journal attempts to publish all letters of opinion that meet our requirements.

Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the Pine Journal. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility.

Letter writers are limited to 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; or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.
