Are you a resident of the City of Lake Worth? Been thinking about contacting the editor at the Post?

I suggest you read the two blog posts following this one and then follow the instructions below.

If you’ve been “sitting on the fence” about writing a Letter to the Editor (LTE), well, you won’t be sitting on the fence for very long.

It only takes 5–10 minutes to write an LTE; here are the instructions:

  • Keep your LTE to 150–200 words in length (the “shorter the better” is a good rule).
  • An LTE submitted by email is the best method: (include your phone number and complete address)
  • Listing your credentials is very helpful.
  • Then always follow-up!
  • Follow up your LTE with an email or fax (561-820-4728) tomorrow.
  • Then later, call the editorial department (561-820-4441); explain why your letter is important.
  • Don’t be timid. Stay pleasant and respectful.
  • Then just ask outright: “Are you planning to publish my letter?”.

Share this information with your friends and neighbors.
