    Reformer Letters Policy

    The Reformer welcomes letters from its readers. Letters will be run on a first-come, first-run basis, unless the subject matter concerns a timely issue.

    Confusing or libelous letters will not be printed. We reserve the right to edit for length and clarity.

    Letters should not exceed 500 words in length and must be signed by the letter writer, include a town of residence, and bear a daytime telephone number (which will not be published) for verification.

    As a general rule, the Reformer does not publish letters written by people from outside of its coverage area, though exceptions could be made on a case-by-case basis. [However, this rule does not apply to letters specifically referring to something published by the Reformer.]

    Send to: E-mail news@reformer.com (preferred method) or mail to Letter Box, Brattleboro Reformer, 62 Black Mountain Rd., Brattleboro, VT 05301.
