Letters to the Editor Policy

The Mirror welcomes letters.

Publication is at the sole discretion of the editors and will be in within 30 days of receipt. Unpublished submissions can neither be acknowledged nor returned.

All submissions become the property of the Manchester Mirror and are subject to editing for length, grammar, accuracy, clarity, and civility. Some letters may appear in condensed form.

All letters should address a single idea. They must include the author’s name — no pseudo- or anonymous letters will be published. Please also include your city, village or township, this will be included with your name (but not your full address or email address).

We ask that all letters to the editor address local issues and come from local experience.

We do not publish form letters, letters written to other publications, or letters directed to individuals. No letters or opinion pieces will be published the issue immediately before an election (unless the letter is a response to a previous letter. In that case, the Mirror may, at its discretion, invite a response that will run in the issue preceding the election.) 

Vitriol should remain in your drafts folder, unsent, as the Mirror will not provide a forum for free-floating aggression, but seeks instead to publish those letters that will educate or provoke thought.

To give an opportunity to the greatest number of writers, no individual’s work will be published more than once every 30 days. (If you find yourself with something to say more often than that, perhaps you should contact us about writing for the Mirror.)
