Rules for letters to the editor

Posted
Colorado Community Media welcomes letters to the editor. Please keep in mind the following rules:
 
• We reserve the right to edit letters for clarity, grammar, punctuation and length. Not all letters are published at our discretion.
• Submit your letter in a Word document or in the body of an email. No PDFs, please.
• Letters must be limited to 250 words or fewer.
• Do not use all caps, italics or bold text.
• Keep it polite: No name calling or “mudslinging.”
• Include a source — and a link to that source — for any information that is not common knowledge. We will not publish information, including quotes, that cannot easily be verified.
• Letters advocating for a political candidate should focus on that candidate’s qualifications for office. We cannot publish letters that contain unverified negative information about a candidate’s opponent.
• Letters advocating for or against a political candidate will not be published within 30 days of an election.
• Only submit ideas and opinions that are your own — and in your own words. We will not publish any letter that appears to be part of a letter-writing campaign.
• Letters will not be published from the same writer on consecutive weeks. Generally we will not publish multiple letters that make the same point.
• Letters should be exclusive to Colorado Communuity Media and not submitted to other outlets or previously posted on social media.
• Submit your letter by 5 p.m. on Wednesday in order for it to appear in the following week’s newspaper.
• Include your full name, address and phone number. We will publish only your name and city or town of residence, but all of the information requested is needed for us to verify you are who you say you are.
• Letters will be considered only from people living in Colorado Community Media's circulation area in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas, Elbert and Jefferson counties.
• Email your letter to letters@coloradocommunitymedia.com.
