LETTERS should be original and no longer than 400 words. Letters must include the author’s name, street address and daytime telephone number (phone number not for publication).
Most letters are published unless they are obscene, libelous, copied from websites or personally attack other writers. Business complaints, poetry or religious testimony will not be accepted. All letters are subject to editing.
Delays in publication of letters usually indicate a backlog. Other issues generally are brought to the writer’s attention for a solution.
Writers are limited to one published letter per month.
Send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org or via postal mail at P.O. Box 338, Philomath, OR 97370.
GUEST VIEWPOINTS must be no longer than 800 words. Local authors addressing local issues are preferred. Publication is at the sole discretion of the Express. Contact the editor at email@example.com if you want to write a guest viewpoint.
