Write a Letter to the Editor

 

We welcome your letters for publication.

 

The POST needs your name and residential address, plus a daytime phone number for verification. House numbers, phone numbers and email addresses are not published.

 

So we can print as many letters as possible, we prefer shorter letters of 300 words or less. The POST may cut longer letters, and letters may be edited for style or clarity.

 

We will not print letters without the writers’ details unless there are legal, security or other serious reasons for us to do so – such as a letter from a whistle-blower, or someone in a hazardous personal or legal situation. If you want your details withheld from publication, please specify your reason in the not-for-publication comments. You will still need to provide your name and address to us.

 

Published letters showing the writers’ names and addresses have far more credibility than those where the details are withheld.

 

Please enter your email address so we can contact you about it if necessary. Your email address will not be used for any other purpose, nor will it be passed on to anybody else without your permission.
The deadline for letters to the editor is noon on the Wednesday before publication.
