Why write a letter to the editor (LTE)?
- The Opinion section is one of the most-read in print and online.
- Thought leaders including politicians, reporters, and the editorial board of the newspaper read these.
- The more people write about any one topic, the more space that opinion will receive in the newspaper. So even if your LTE is not printed, when you write one you give a similar LTE a better chance of being printed online and in print.
