Have you ever written a letter to a national newspaper? Was it published?

Over the years I have been moderately successful in getting letters published in The Times (of London), although my "strike rate" has not been so great lately! What about you? What sort of letter might you write if you felt the urge to do so?

I have had a few letters printed in the Los Angeles Times usually a response to an entertainment section article.

Not a national newspaper, but one for the Oxford Mail or Times, cant remember which and one for the Westword and yes both times published. Also was interviewed once for the Denver Post. Good to see you John.

Up to now I've only written a letter to our local newspaper concerning a critique of a cultural event I didn't agree with. It was published.

I don't usually write to newspapers. I did write to the RAC (Royal Automobile Club) once about the state of our road and that resulted in some action.Well done for getting your letters published.
