Links for e-mailing Letters to the Editor

A few points before you start:
1. Be brief.  Letters under 150 words are more apt to be published.
2. Include your name, address and phone number.  Most papers will not publish a letter unless you do.  They may call you to verify it is really you sending the letter.  However, papers will hold your address and phone out of print if you request, so don’t let this stop you from writing!
3. Make sure you send your letter as a separate email to each newspaper.  If you try to address it to all the papers at once, no paper will publish it.  Newspapers do not publish a letter they know has been bulk-mailed. Copy the body of your letter to your clipboard, click on each link, paste the body in, send it, then use yourBack” button to get back to this page and click on the next link. In five or ten minutes, you’ve posted to the whole list!
4. If you find that one of these links is broken or out of date, please leave a comment below. I may delete the comment after fixing the problem, but rest assured I am grateful!

    This is a great resource.
    I also have a mailing list, broken up into 15 news media (includes TV, radio, shoppers, etc. + major AL dailies)lists (so you don't get slapped for "spamming"). Good for mass mailing news releases, etc.
