Make Your Point: City Times Open Letter Policy
City Times Staff
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 name and city of residence.
Letters from outside Portage Co. will not be considered.
Candidates for public office may submit open letters opening any topic, however letters asking for votes are considered advertisement and will be referred to the sales department.
Letters should convey an opinion: the opinion page is generally not a community bulletin board to be used for announcements of events, or other primarily informational items.
The City Times will not print religious sermons, though scripture supporting opinion is permitted.
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: EDITOR, Stevens Point City Times, 73 Sunset Blvd., Stevens Point, WI 54481.
