Write to your local paper

Letters to the editor are short — roughly 200 word — direct responses to a recently published news article or opinion piece. This makes them an opportunity to share perspectives that go against prevailing media narratives. 

When writing a response to a tough on crime article, we encourage you to call for transformative change. Don’t be afraid to name drop specific politicians! MPs pay attention when their names turn up in the news.

The Better Public Media Trust has published guidelines to follow when writing a letter to the editor. For basic guidance, you can find them here.
