Q. Is an Editorial different from Letter to the Editor?

I am not allowed to use Editorials in my assignment. Would Letter to the Editor be OK?


Yes, the two are different:

  • An editorial is a piece written by the editors of the newspaper.
  • A letter to the editor is an individual reader's comments and opinions on an article/piece of information that appeared in the publication.
  • The writer's credentials in a letter to the editor will not be verifiable and the information may even be biased.

If you are not allowed to use editorials, stay away from letter to the editors as well. 

The Online Resources contain articles written by experts in the field.
