Policy Information

Letters Policy

The Jonesboro Sun welcomes original letters from our readers. Letters must be signed by hand and include the writer's full home address, plus daytime and evening telephone numbers for verification.

Because of space limitations, letters should be 350 words or less in length.

Anonymous letters will not be considered, and we will not withhold the names of letter writers. Pseudonyms will not be used.

We will not publish personal attacks, libelous material, falsehoods, unsubstantiated claims against businesses or evidentiary matter in lawsuits.

We will not publish "thank-you letters" that list commercial sponsors. "Thank-you letters" which concern a matter of public interest or current events will be considered.

Generally, we publish letters in the order in which we receive them.

The editors reserve the right to shut off debate when letters on a specific subject become repetitious.

Mail letters to:
Letters to the Editor,
The Jonesboro Sun,
518 Carson St.,
Jonesboro 72401.
Letters can also be faxed to 870-935-5823.
E-mail letters can be sent to: cwessel@jonesborosun.com.
