The public is invited to learn how to craft an effective letter to the editor by attending a free virtual workshop set for 5:30 to 7 p.m., Thursday, March 11, via Zoom.
Anyone who has a concern and wants to be heard by friends, neighbors and local lawmakers will be taught how to write an effective letter to the editor, which is an opinion piece that can be submitted for print in local newspapers.
Presenting the event are the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays and the Clean Water: Delaware's Clear Choice campaign. An editor from Delaware Online/the News Journal will be on hand to answer attendees’ questions and offer guidance on things people can do to give their letters the best chance to get published.
Advance registration is required; to register and receive the Zoom link, go to inlandbays.org, click on events and find the March 11 workshop on the calendar. Once registered, attendees will receive additional information on how to join the meeting.
