FAIRFIELD — There is a new way to get your voice in the Fairfield Citizen. You can now send your letters and opinion pieces directly to Fairfieldletters@hearstmediact.com.

All letters to the Fairfield Citizen are subject to editing for length, taste and accuracy. Only letters written exclusively to the Fairfield Citizen will be used, and only if the writer's name can also be published.

To be considered for publication, letters must include the writer's name, address and daytime phone number. Contributors should specify whether they want their email addresses published. Open letters, letters to third parties and poetry are not considered.

We prefer letters that are fewer than 500 words. They may not have been submitted to, posted to or published by any other media. Writers should also disclose any personal or financial interest in the subject matter of their letters.

Letters published in the newspaper will also appear on www.fairfieldcitizenonline.com.
