The Mountain Times Letters To the Editor Policy
It is the policy of The Mountain Times to encourage reader participation on its Reader's Forum page. Because of space limitations, all letters must be 400 words or less- no exceptions. The 400 word count does not include "Dear Editor" or the letter's ending e.g., "Sincerely, Tom Smith." Letters that meet the 400 or less word limit will be published upon approval from the Managing Editor. Letters containing any of the following will not be considered for publication:
The Mountain Times will not knowingly publish factually incorrect information. It is the responsibility of those using statistics or quotes in letters to cite their source of information. Letters containing undocumented statistical information will not be published.
Only letters written to The Mountain Times will be considered for publication, letters to a third party will not be considered for publication.
Letters written in response to other letter writers should note the date of publication and/ or title of the letter to which they are responding. Discourse should be civil and people should be referred to in a respectful manner. Letters responding to stories published in The Mountain Times should mention the headline and/or author.
All letters must be LEGIBLY handwritten or typed and must include the writer's name, home address and phone number (to be used for verification only, and will not be published.) Letters without all of this information will not be considered for publication.
Letters from the same author will not be published in consecutive editions of The Mountain Times. If an author makes multiple or frequent submissions, their letters can only be published every other week.
We welcome your input in the Reader's Forum, but reserve the right to edit for space and content. Deadline is Monday by 4 p.m. Letters may be sent to: Editor, Mountain Times 474 Industrial Park Dr., Boone, NC 28607 or to the PO Box listed above.
