Letters to the Editor Policy

Letters to the Editor Policy

  • The word-count limit for letters is 350, including signatures (with exceptions at the discretion of the editor).
  • Letters may be edited for length, style, and clarity.
  • Email letters to or send by regular mail to Editor, The Harvard Press, P.O. Box 284, Harvard, MA 01451. Deadline is 5 p.m. Tuesday to be included in that Friday's edition.
  • Letters should include your name, address, and phone number. Phone numbers and house numbers will not be printed; they are used only for verification.
  • We will not print anonymous letters, form letters, blanket-mail letters, or letters that we consider libelous.
  • We will not print more than one letter from the same person in any given week.
  • Letters must be signed by individuals; we do not accept group names as signatures. Up to four people may sign a letter on behalf of a group; all must provide addresses and phone numbers.
  • During contests for public office, we will not publish endorsement letters the Friday before an election. Based on space availability, we may limit the number of endorsement letters in a given week, but will strive to print a balanced representation of letters received. We will not publish negative letters about any candidate.
  • All letters may be read online by Harvard Press subscribers who are logged-on registered users of the website.

An appreciation for the Harvard Press

I don’t often find myself writing a letter to the editor of a newspaper (like maybe one other time), but I wanted to express my appreciation for the Harvard Press. I started with the former Post 20-plus years ago when first moving to Harvard. Over the years I’ve found myself glued to [Press] coverage of current events, school sports coverage, political opinion pieces, special interests, and letters to the editor. 

I just wanted to let you know that I think the recent issue of Nov. 6, covering the election, the pandemic and its impact on Harvardians, and Harvard events like Halloween, the election, the new school, and a freak early snowstorm was one of your best. The attention to local politics, national events, and the pressures faced by officials and residents showed intelligence and compassion. I even appreciated the letters to the editor, as they were thoughtful and cogent. I don’t always agree with their points of view but I appreciate their depth and attention to issues that I had not considered. 

So, this somewhat fawning letter is my way of just telling all the staff at the Press that I really appreciate this labor of love that you all produce. It captures Harvard life in a way not available in any other publication and in a way not often seen in journalism at large.
