How to Submit a Letter to the Editor

All letters to the editor are welcome and will be considered for publication or posting online. The preferred method is to email letters to Editor@NJFreePress.Com or by mail to Clayton Free Press, P.O. Box 201, Clayton, NJ 08312.

Letters should be timely and should be addressed to the editor; no open letters to other people are printed. Letters must be signed, must contain contact information including letter writer’s city, email address and telephone number (for our verification purposes).

Your name can be withheld from publication upon request and after our verification.

Letters must be fewer than 300 words, with no more than four signatures per letter. We edit and/or trim letters as little as possible, but we reserve the right to do so as necessary (letters may be edited and shortened for space).

Letters should be exclusive to The Clayton Free Press. We do not publish letters previously or concurrently submitted to other publications, open letters to legislators or third-party letters. If we determine that the same letter received and published by the Clayton Free Press was concurrently submitted to other media, no further letters will be accepted from those submitting.
