From the newsroom: Writing a letter to the editor

While our newspaper doesn’t have an “opinion desk,” we welcome letters to the editor from our readers. 

Here are some tips and ideas to writing a good letter, as well as our letter writing policies.

Anyone can write a letter to our publication, but we do prefer local readers, and will prioritize their voices over that of those not from the local region in western Washington County and the edges of the counties surrounding us.

Include your name, address, and phone number ( address and phone number will not be published) on issues, news, and items of concern in the community, and please note the headline of the story you’re referencing, if that is the case. Please keep it between 100-350 words. We reserve the right to edit letters for clarity, spelling, punctuation errors, and space.
