Letters to the Editor or Op Ed

Letter guidelines: Letters or columns expressing opinions on news and commentary published in the Albuquerque Journal are welcome. Submissions accepted for publication may appear in print or in electronic media, including the Journal's Internet Web site, searchable archives and databases. Preference is given to letters that are fresh, brief, clear and that don't require factual verification. Letters must include writer's signature, home address and telephone, and a daytime number. Though addresses and phone numbers are not published, they are needed to confirm authorship prior to publication. Letters keyed to an upcoming event or date should be mailed well in advance. All letters and opinion articles are edited, including for length and clarity.


All information is used solely for verification purposes.
* fields are required.
The word limit for a letter to the editor is 300. The word limit for an opinion column is 550.
Enter email address or at least a unique identifier, i.e. fullname or phone number if fullname is common. Email addresses are used solely for verification and to speed the verfication process for repeat letter writers.
