Letters to the editor and guest columns should include your first and last name, your city or town and a phone number for verification purposes. Limit your letter to 350 words. Guest columns should be between 600-800 words.

Letters to the editor should be the author’s own work. We strongly discourage and will attempt to weed out form letters, letters that have been mailed to other news outlets or letters that have been written and/or edited by a third party, including but not limited to political parties and public relations specialists. We try to limit printing one submission per author per month.

We reserve the right to edit, condense or reject any letter to the editor or any guest column. We do not publish anonymous letters, personal attacks, personal complaints, poetry, consumer complaints, religious treatises or letters written in bad taste.

Letters and guest columns may be brought to The Times Record office; mailed to 3 Business Parkway, Suite 1, Brunswick, ME 04011; e-mailed to [email protected]. We do not accept handwritten material.
