How to Submit to Your Voice

Your opinions are an important part of the Plymouth Independent. We welcome your letters and commentaries. All we ask is that you follow some commonsense guidelines.

For starters, we need to know who you are. Any submission must include the author’s full name, an email address, and a phone number (for verification purposes only). If you’re writing as a representative of a group or organization, please state that. Standing behind your opinion gives it heft and credibility. You can even share links to pertinent sources if it helps make a point or bolster your position.

But while we encourage a robust exchange of ideas, we don’t have the resources to fact-check letters and essays filled with speculative statements and assertions that venture beyond the realm of opinion. We also won’t accept political endorsements, local or otherwise. Anything that even hints of discrimination or hate will be rejected outright. Good taste is a good thing. Brevity is an asset – getting right to the point saves us from cutting your copy, and helps to ensure that people will read what you have to say.

Put simply, we’ll show as much latitude as possible, but we reserve the right to not publish any submission that doesn’t meet those modest standards.

Now, with that out of the way, let’s hear from you. Send your letters or commentaries to: We’re looking forward to it.
