Write a Letter to the Editor

Writing a letter to a local paper about affordable housing or homelessness? Here are some tips and resources to help make it easier to get your letter to the top of the publication pile.

  • Keep it under 250-300 words for best chance of publication (some papers have specific guidelines; see below)
  • Be sure to include your name, town and contact info (some papers will verify before publishing letters) and follow the paper’s instructions carefully for submitting letters.
  • See below for most up-to-date letter submission links. Don’t overlook your own community’s weekly as an outlet – some are below but please drop us a note if we’ve missed yours and let us know where you sent your letter.
