Letters to the Editor and Guest Column guidelines

The Opinions page is where The Forum and InForum readers express their opinions and learn of other perspectives on issues in the news.

Letters to the editor: We welcome letters of up to 250 words. Please include your name, address and daytime phone number for verification. We publish a representative sampling of letters received, and those that are respectful, civil and stick to issues go to the head of the line. Letters will be edited for grammar, clarity and conciseness. We generally don't publish more than one letter per writer per month.

You can submit your letter by sending it to letters@forumcomm.com. Please copy and paste the letter into the email, rather than sending attachments. Send via mail to Letters to the editor, PO Box 2020, Fargo, N.D., 58107.

Letters and columns become property of The Forum and InForum and can be republished in any format.

Any questions can be directed to Community Editor Angie Wieck at (701) 241-5501 or awieck@forumcomm.com.
