We encourage QSC members to write to the press regarding aircraft noise
pollution, in order to keep the issue in the spotlight. This is particularly important
from fall through spring when the issue tends not to be a priority for many people
--until the noise barrage begins anew in springtime.
Character Limits. Many publications have a maximum word or character limit
for a Letter to the Editor, often the limit is around 450 words or 5,000 characters.
Submission Deadlines. Deadlines for submission of letters vary and are indicated
on each publication's website but, if submitted by noon Monday, they usually will be
accepted for publication that same week.
Accepted Formats. All publications accept mailed or electronic submissions.
You may submit your letter via email your email program by typing in the text of
your letter. Alternatively, you may attach a WORD document. Do not attach a PDF
which cannot be edited. Editors reserve the right to proofread and edit submissions
Confirm Receipt. Letters may at times be misplaced or attachments may be
unable to be opened by the editor, so it is best to call the publication and confirm
receipt of your letter and check that your document can be opened without difficulty.
Restrictions. Some editors will publish letters from the same writer only
every 60 or 90 days; they will not publish anonymous letters or articles.
Copies for our archives. We ask that you provide QSC with an email copy
