It's Our Turn: Everything you wanted to know about letters to the editor

Email News Alerts

I received about 500 letters last year.

No, I don’t belong to some kind of pen pal club. These were letters not addressed to me personally, but as letters to the editor, which were published here on our Opinion page.


I love getting these kinds of letters. Reading other people’s reactions to our stories or their take on hot news topics can be frustrating at times but also day-brightening, fascinating and fun.
