Letters to the Editor

Letters to the editor are incredibly important to The Observer as a way for our readers to engage with our content and editorial board. As such, letters should respond to specific content published by The Observer or to the publication’s actions. Pieces written about issues relevant to the Case Western Reserve University or Cleveland community that have not been covered by The Observer are not letters to the editor; that being said, these types of articles are oftentimes worth publishing. If you have an opinion piece you would like to write that doesn’t fit the criteria to be a letter to the editor, please send an email to us at observer@case.edu.

Letter to the editor submissions should be 400 words or less and will be published at the editorial board’s discretion. Additionally, letters to the editor need to include the writer’s full name, address and telephone number. Anonymous letters will not be published. Letters from organizations must contain the name of an individual for contact purposes. After choosing a letter to the editor, we will contact the submitting individual about their letter before publishing it. Selected submissions will then be edited for style, grammar and content at the discretion of The Observer’s editorial board.
