Usage Instructions

A letter to the editor (LTE) is a short piece, usually 150 to 250 words, that you can submit to your local newspaper to be published. An LTE offers your own perspective or commentary on a topic, often suggested by an article or feature in the newspaper. This resource can help you create an effective LTE. 

It's a good idea to have someone in your CCL chapter regularly monitor your local newspaper(s) for articles that relate to climate change and present opportunities to write LTEs. 

If you need some help crafting your letter, check out our training materials on “Writing Effective Letters to the Editor” to learn more. You can also use our helpful LTE Tool to submit your letter. Below is a downloadable list of suggested LTE topics and here's the list as a google doc
