Welcome to Forward's Letter to the Editor toolkit. If you're here, that probably means you're interested in submitting a letter to the editor of your local newspaper or magazine. Outstanding! It only takes 3-5 minutes, and it will impact thousands of people in your community. Submit your letter in five easy steps:

  1. Make a copy of one of our letter templates using the first button below.
  2. Edit the letter to change it to your liking.
  3. Find your local paper using the second button below.
  4. Follow the instructions on their site to submit your letter.
  5. Share on social media and @ Forward Party on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook - we may just share it too!

Below, find template letters you can use as a first draft (we encourage you to make it your own). Also, our team of volunteers has built an easy-to-use listing of publications (and their process for submitting letters) from around the country. Find one near you!
