The Flatlander welcome letters reflecting opinions from all sides, including dissenters and contrarians.
Letter writers are entitled to their own opinions, but not to their own facts. Although, there is a middle area in which fact and opinion intertwine, The Flatlander does try to verify the facts, either by checking them on our own, or asking writers for sources of their information.
We reserve the right to edit letters for length, clarity, civility, and accuracy. We will send you the edited version before publication.
If your letter is selected, we may try to reach you to verify you wrote the letter and to understand if you have a connection to the subject you’re writing about.
Letters should be no longer than 250 words and should be in reference to a topic covered in The Flatlander.
Letters must include the writer’s address and phone number, which is standard industry practice to help us confirm your identity. We won’t print anonymous letters, though in some cases we may withhold your name on request.
Letters can be sent to [email protected]
