The Her­ald let­ters policy

The Herald (South Africa) - - OPINION & ANALYSIS -

LET­TERS must bear your full name, ad­dress and a con­tact num­ber. The Her­ald will with­hold let­ter writ­ers’ names from pub­li­ca­tion on re­quest, but de­tails must be pro­vided. For SMSes, please pro­vide your name and a pseu­do­nym, if you do not want your name pub­lished.

Pref­er­ence will be given to short, con­cise let­ters. Let­ters must be the sender’s orig­i­nal work and not copied from else­where.

Pref­er­ence will be given to the views of or­di­nary read­ers above sub­mis­sions from po­lit­i­cal par­ties.

The Her­ald wel­comes com­ment and de­bate on news or mat­ters of pub­lic in­ter­est. Vul­gar or abu­sive lan­guage and per­sonal at­tacks will not be tol­er­ated.

The ed­i­tor re­serves the right, with­out stat­ing rea­sons, to shorten or edit let­ters or SMSes. The ed­i­tor sim­i­larly re­serves the right not to pub­lish any given let­ter or SMS.
