Letters to the Editor policy
The Waupaca County Post encourages all readers to submit their Letters to the Editor no more than once every two weeks.
Letters should be a maximum of 250 words and may appear in our weekly print issue.
Letters containing libelous, slanderous or vulgar language or making false claims will not be considered for publication. When possible, letters will be edited to remove such language and retained for publication.
Letters should be original to the sender, with sources cited when appropriate. All submissions must include the author’s full name and city of residence.
Letters must be local in nature and cannot be a thank you message or sponsorship listing.
All letters submitted as an endorsement for a political candidate, referendum or political agenda will carry the same guidelines as above; however, they will be charged $40 per letter of up to 250 words in length. Longer political letters will be accepted but will be charged $10 per additional 50 words.
All political letters must be prepaid prior to printing. Letters to the Editor will not be accepted from candidates running for election or representatives of an organization endorsing their own referendum; those submissions will be referred to our advertising department to be run as ads.
