Submit A Letter To The Editor

The Mail Tribune welcomes letters on any topic of general public relevance and interest. Please include a daytime phone number and address for verification. We do not print letters, even e-mail letters, without verification. We do not publish phone numbers or addresses, just the writer’s name, and town.

We’re interested in the comments of all our online readers, but we publish letters only from residents within our Southern Oregon and Northern California circulation area.

We do not publish poetry.

Writers are limited to one letter every 30 days. The 30 days are counted from the day the letter is published.

Letters are limited to 200 words (150 words for a thank-you or election letters).

As with everything that appears in our paper, we reserve the right to edit letters for grammar, spelling, and length. Editing is done very sparingly, and we will never knowingly change the meaning of a letter.

If a letter is well above the 200-word limit, we return it and ask the writer to shorten it.
