Letters to the Editor
Letters may be sent by e-mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org, postal mailed to The
Journal, SLB-22E, P.O. Box 19243-9243,
UIS, Springfield, IL 62794 or faxed to
(217) 206-7710. Letters should be 300 words or less. Deadline for submitting letters is noon on Thursday of each week. For verification purposes and if questions should arise, letters must include the author's name, address, phone number, grade level and major (if a student). We will not print phone numbers or addresses except city or housing complex. The editor will consider publishing letters some might view as “negative” or “critical,” but those letters, like all submitted
letters, need to be well thought out, organized and provide examples to support the assertions made within the letter. The editor reserves the right to reject letters for publication if they: (1) are potentially libelous; (2) are seen as a personal attack rather than analytical criticism on a particular person(s), organization or group;
(3) fail to include the specifications mentioned above (inclusion of the author's name, address and phone number and not exceeding 300 words); (4) are offensive in that the material within the letter is any of the following: blatantly ageist, sexist, racist or homophobic; (5) are received past the deadline for the next issue.
Journal editorials are the opinion of
the newspaper's editorial board. Guest columns
should be between 300-500 words.
The Journal does not necessarily endorse
opinions expressed in any column. The Journal recognizes the importance of providing a forum for our readers to express personal views. Questions may be directed to The Journal at (217) 206-NEWS.
The Journal does not knowingly accept advertisements that discriminate on the basis of sex, race, creed, religion, color, disability, military status or sexual orientation, nor does it knowingly print ads that violate any local, state or federal laws.
