This writer's letter in today Globe & Mail is well-written and right on the mark:
Globeandmail.com : Speaking of gall - Feb 23 2006
(if I say so myself:-)
If you are interested in getting a letter in the Globe, here's my advice - based on my experiences getting published:
1. Keep it short. The Star and the Financial Post will sometime accomodate longer letters - but not the G&M.
2. Consider a play on words - they seem to like that
3. Don't be scornful - especially about editorials.
4. It's easier to get a letter published in response to another letter. The paper doesn't seem to alot much space for letters responding to editorials and columnists.
