Submit a Letter to the Editor


We accept letters/opinions that include an address and daytime telephone number for verification.

Letters: 200-word limit; letters over 200 words will not be considered; one per month per writer.

Guest Opinions: 500-word limit; one per three months per writer. Guest Opinions are selected to further explore topics of broad public interest.

The Statesman does not publish: form letters, libelous letters, business promotions or complaints, poetry, open letters, letters espousing or attacking religious views without reference to a current issue, or letters considered in poor taste.

  • All submissions reflect the opinion of the writer. The Statesman cannot verify the accuracy of statements made in submitted material.
  • All submissions are subject to editing - but editing will not change the essence of the writer's opinion.
  • Preference is given to in-state writers.

All submissions become the property of the Idaho Statesman.
