The Empire welcomes letters from readers. Letters should not exceed 400 words and must include the writer's name, hometown and phone number. The Empire will edit submissions for length, clarity, grammar and libelous content. The Empire does not publish copies of letters sent to third parties. The newspaper does not run petitions signed by multiple people on the opinion page; instead it runs opinion pieces by no more than two writers.
Letters related to the Nov. 2 election will run in the Empire through Sunday, Oct. 31. They must be submitted by noon Friday, Oct. 29.
The Empire prints as many letters as possible, but is unable to print all of them. Those that are printed represent the range of letters that are received.
My Turn columns are limited to 700 words and must include the writer's name, hometown, phone number and a sentence identifying the writer's credentials.
The letters, My Turns, syndicated columns, cartoons and guest editorials appearing on this page do not represent the Empire's views, but those of the writers, artists and newspapers that produced them.
