The Harlan Daily Enterprise encourages and welcomes letters to the editor. Letters should be about issues of general interest and no longer than 400 words. They should not be libelous or in bad taste. We will not publish poetry, open letters or anonymous letters. Letters thanking sponsors or endorsing candidates will be considered, but publication can only be assured through advertising. Letters that exceed 400 words can be considered as a guest column.
We reserve the right to edit for grammar and spelling, but meaning will not be altered.
Letters must be signed, include a street address, hometown, and telephone number. The street address and telephone number will not be published. No more than one letter should be submitted every two weeks.
Letters can be hand delivered to our office at P.O. Box 1155, Harlan, KY 40831, emailed to email@example.com, faxed to 606-573-0042 or submitted through our website at harlandaily.com.
