Letters to the editor: Chronicle guidelines


The Dalles Chronicle welcomes letters. These should be signed, accurate, free from libel, and include the writer’s name, telephone number, street address (which will not be printed) and city of residence for verification. Those without complete identification of the writer will not be published, the most common reason letters are not published. (If your letter hasn’t been published, call 541-506-4601.)

400 words

Writers are limited to one letter per month and 400 words per letter. All letters are subject to editing. Letters to the editor and guest columns printed in The Chronicle do not necessarily reflect the opinion or approval of the newspaper. Thank you letters with long lists (more than five individuals or groups) will not be published without revision to shorten the list.

Guest comment

Opinions from writers with reputable qualifications may be considered for guest editorial status, and are limited to 800 words.
