New guidelines for letters and viewpoint columns

The Jamestown Press has created new guidelines for letters to the editor and viewpoint column submissions.

All letters will now be limited to 500 words. Letters should be emailed to news@jamestownpress.com.

Viewpoint columns will be limited to 750 words; however, unsolicited viewpoint submissions will no longer be accepted. If you have an idea for a viewpoint column, please call 423-3200 to discuss your idea with the editor prior to submission.

Our goal is that these new guidelines will allow the Press to publish a greater number of letters and columns that reflect the diverse views of all islanders.
