Patch 101: Write a Letter to the Editor

Sound off on Collingswood issues with a letter to the editor.

Have something to say on a town issue? Want to thank your neighbors for something? Care to take a political stance? Write Collingswood Patch a letter to the editor.

Collingswood Patch accepts letters to the editor on any issue important to our readers. While there are plenty of ways to share your viewpoint—in the comments or by starting a Patch blog, for example—a letter to the editor is an easy way to make your opinion heard.

Type up your letter—try to keep it to fewer than 500 words—and send it off to Matt Skoufalos, matt.skoufalos@patch.com. Easy as pie.

A few things to keep in mind:

1. Include your name, town and email address in case we need to verify your identity. Only your name and town will be published.

2. Put “Letter to the editor” in the subject line of your email so we don’t miss it.

3. Remember you can write letters that rebut other opinions you see on Patch, just make sure you reference the original post so readers know what you’re talking about.

I find this interesting, I wrote to you several times and I don't mind, wait I do mind a little, that you did not publish what I sent, but what I really do mind is that you never even acknowledged what I sent via an email. I think the public needs to know that something they have witnessed or a problem they have come across may never make the Patch.
