Letters to the Editor and Guest Column guidelines

The Opinions page is where Detroit Lakes Tribune readers express their opinions and learn of other perspectives on issues in the news.

Letters to the editor:

All letters are verified for authenticity, so please include a name, address and phone number. Only the author's name and city of residence will be printed, however. Letters may be edited for spelling and punctuation errors, libel, length and other factors. Letters are printed on a space available basis. The editor reserves the right to reject letters.

You can submit your letter by sending it to jbeach@forumcomm.com. Please copy and paste the letter into the email, rather than sending attachments. Or mail letters to Detroit Lakes Tribune, 511 Washington Ave., Detroit Lakes, MN 56501.
