How to submit a letter to the editor
We encourage a diversity of voices and views in our letters. Letters should preferably be 150 to 175 words, should refer to an article that has appeared within the last seven days, and must include the writer's address and phone number. No attachments, please.
Letters should be exclusive to The New York Times or The International New York Times. We do not publish open letters or third-party letters.
Writers of letters selected for publication will be notified within a week. (Hint: Send submissions as soon as possible after the article appears!) Letters may be edited and shortened for space.
Because of the large volume of submissions we receive, we cannot personally acknowledge each submission, but we do send an automated email reply.
