· Reference a specific story from the publication to which you are sending a letter.
· Be civil. If your letter is harsh, they won’t print it.
· Be brief. Say what you want in fewer words. Stick to the point. Write it out and then edit it down to half its size.
· Be accurate and error-free. Have someone edit it before you send.

Before you call or visit, it may be helpful to write down 2-3 main points you
