Submissions/Letters to the editor policy
The Guardsman encourages feedback from our readers. We will attempt to publish letters to the editor as soon as our publication schedule allows.
We offer the following guidelines to readers for submissions:
Letters should be signed with at least a first and last name, or The Guardsman will not be able to publish the letter. Also, please indicate if you are a student or a member of the faculty at CIty College.
Please include your name, phone number, and address along with your submission: The Guardsman will attempt to contact you to verify the authenticity of your submission.
The Guardsman reserves the right to edit letters to the editor for length; please try to keep submissions to 200 words or fewer.
The Guardsman will be unable to publish submissions that do not meet the standards of our publication, which include, but are not limited to:
incoherence, personal attacks, vulgarity, profanity (this includes expletives or letters followed by symbols or dashes), obscenity, commercial promotion or “plugging” a person, product or service and impersonations.
Letters addressed to individual writers may also be published and the writer, section editor and/or The Guardsman’s editorial board may, at their choosing write a response to be published alongside any letters received.
The Guardsman reserves the right to pubish and/or republish submissions in any form.
If wish to give feedback directly to The Guardsman but would rather not have your letter published, specify so in your letter.
