Tips: The shorter the better. Ideally your letter should be no more than 200 words. Personalise your email as much as possible. Start by referring directly to the issue that is concerning you, and explain how it affects you personally. Newspapers take personalised emails from their readers much more seriously than pro-forma emails.

Make sure you submit your full name, address and contact number (you can request your address is withheld, but editors like to confirm who you are).
