Letters to the Editor limited in length, not in delivery methods
What is the word limit on editorials to the Olympian? Also, what is the process for submittal? -- Emily Bartha, Policy Program Associate, Sustainable NorthwestMike Oakland, Opinion Editor People sometimes mislabel parts of the opinion page. I suspect this Portland reader wants to know the word limit for letters to the editor. The answer: 250 words, and letters can be submitted via e-mail (email@example.com), via our Web site (www.theolympian.com/opinion), via snail mail (111 Bethel St., Olympia, WA 98507) or fax (360-357-0202). Editorials are the opinion of the newspaper; a description of how they are created can be found below.
