What are some advantages of writing a letter to the editor compared to the letters from SLP 1–3 assignments?

Assignment Overview

The Session Long Project entails you going through the process of influencing policymakers. In your first three SLP assignments you wrote a letter to “raise a concern,” “oppose a position,” and “support a position.” While these are direct ways of influencing policymakers by letter writing, there are aIDitional indirect ways that can also achieve your objectives. Some ways are writing a letter to the editor or “Op-Eds.” Policymakers read local newspapers opinion sections and letters to the editor as a way of tracking how the people feel about particular issues (Connecticut Health Policy, 2013b). This week’s required reading from the Connecticut Health Policy toolbox covers both letters to the editor and “Op-Eds.”

Note: This required Background Reading from the Connecticut Healthy Policy toolbox will take you to a different page than the previous three SLP assignments.
