How to submit a letter

Email letters to letters@jacksonville.com.

Tips: Letters have a better chance of being published if they include these traits:

  1. Brevity helps. A lead letter is 350 words, an opinion column is 600 words. We prefer lead letters over columns. For regular letters we suggest a maximum length of about 200 words.
  2. Cite sources for important facts and quotations so we can check them.
  3. Avoid personal comments. Stick to the issues.
  4. Be sure to list your name, address and phone number for confirmation.
  5. If you are especially interested in having your letter published, send an email to Editorial Page Editor Mike Clark: mike.clark@jacksonville.com
