How To Write an Effective Letter to the Editor via ZOOM

March 18, 2021 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

The purpose of the “Letters to the Editor” page in newspapers is to give everyday people an opportunity to publish their views, comment on a recent article, respond to issues of the day and possibly influence people to consider a topic in a new way. These reasons make writing a letter to the editor one of the easiest ways to get your message across to thousands of readers. But getting it published? That’s a more difficult accomplishment.

Roger Hirschberg, a Vermont dentist with a passion for politics, has managed to get 40 letters to the editor published in a short 3½ years in esteemed newspapers such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and Los Angeles Times. He recently published a uniquely formatted compilation of these letters, with accompanying narrative: Speaking Out in the Time of Trump – One Citizen Finds His Voice in Letters to the Editor.
