City-Times Open Letter Policy
The Stevens Point City-Times encourages all readers to submit their Letters to the Editor no more than once every two weeks.
Letters should be a maximum of 500 words and may appear in our weekly print issue or online at www.spcitytimes.com. Letters containing libelous, slanderous or vulgar language will not be considered for publication.
Letters should be original to the sender, with sources cited when appropriate. All submissions must include the author’s full rather than a pseudonym.
The writer must include his or her street address and telephone number, though only the city/town of residence will be published. Letters from outside Portage Co. will not be considered unless the author is a candidate for a district, state or federal public office.
Letters must convey an opinion. The opinion page is not a community bulletin board to be used for announcements of events, or other primarily informational items.
The City-Times will not print poetry.
The City-Times welcomes letters from readers of all ages, though letters written by readers under the age of 18 must have parental permission prior to publication.
To submit your letter, email [email protected] or send a typed copy to: Stevens Point City-Times, 23 Park Ridge Drive Suite 1B, Stevens Point, WI 54481.
