We look for clearly written letters that advance the conversation, provide additional context for readers or contribute in other ways. We do not publish letters that contain vulgar language or personal attacks, nor do we publish one-line comebacks or standalone links.

We do not have the staffing to copy edit letters, so submissions with obvious punctuation and capitalization mistakes may not be considered.

While not a requirement for publication, please consider using your real name as we find the use of true identities contributes to the civility of the conversation.

We have a small team and will read your letters in as timely a manner as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
