Guidelines for submitting a My Turn or letter to the editor

Add your voice to the conversation by submitting a letter to the editor or My Turn to the Juneau Empire.

Letters should not exceed 250 words, and My Turns are limited to 700. Submissions must include writer’s name, hometown, phone number and a sentence identifying their credentials, including any pertinent jobs or affiliations.

The Empire will edit submissions for length, clarity, grammar and libelous content. The newspaper does not run petitions or copies of letters sent to a third party. 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.

The Empire only publishes one letter or My Turn a month per writer. This ensures that no one monopolizes a discussion. The Empire does not accept letters or My Turns from those actively running for public office. The letters, My Turns, syndicated columns, cartoons and guest editorials do not represent the Empire’s views, but those of the writers, artists and newspapers that produced them.

Letters to the Editor and My Turns can be submitted through the Empire’s website or by emailing editor@juneauempire.com.
