Your Difference: How to Write a Letter to the Editor

If writing letters to the editor is part of your plans, here are two solid resources to help you do it.

Alaska specific
The Alaska Senate Democrats have put together a summary page  with links to six of the major newspapers in Alaska. When you click on the name of a paper, it takes you to the page with their specific instructions for how to get them to publish your letter.

Note: When you first look at this page, you just see the letters they’ve written, but scroll down a bit to see the list of newspapers.

How to write so your letter gets noticed by lawmakers
I did some poking around, and the best advice I found for writing a compelling letter to the editor comes from the Union of Concerned Scientists. Highly recommend their page here.
