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:

  • 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.
  • Cite sources for important facts and quotations so we can check them.
  • Avoid personal comments. Stick to the issues.
  • Be sure to list your name, address and phone number for confirmation.

If you are especially interested in having your letter published, send an email to Editorial Page Editor Mike Clark: mike.clark@jacksonville.com
