We love hearing from our readers, and encourage a diversity of views and subjects in our letters. Submit your letter below.

We publish most letters except those that contain personal attacks, make obviously inaccurate factual assertions or endorse candidates running for public office (please see our policy regarding election coverage and letters to the editor).   

We have a few simple guidelines: 

Stand behind what you say: No anonymous letters will be published. Submitted letters must include the writer’s first and last name, as well as an email address and phone number, used for verification and editing purposes but kept private. If your letter is published, your full name will be posted online, along with information about your general location or affiliation; for example, the ward or part of Evanston in which you live, or the group that you represent.

Be concise: Letters should not contain attachments, and may be edited for clarity, length and to conform with the RoundTable’s style rules. Longer messages may be considered for publication as guest essays. 

Give others a turn: Generally, we have a 30-day waiting period between publication of letters from the same person or group.
