Send Letters to the Editor

We want to read and publish your letters to the editor. Please write to us about what you read and see in ENR and ENR.com, but make sure, unlike emails and blog comments, not to use electronic shorthand references. Also try to finish your thoughts and sentences.

To publish or post your letter online, we need contact information that includes your name and daytime and evening phone numbers (in addition to the email handle). A base city of the company you work for or own and your job title is also appreciated.

Letters may be edited for style, format, clarity and length and we reserve the right to use them electronically as well as in print. The best ones make their point a little more thoroughly than a blog comment or quickly written email but don’t go overboard in length. We rarely publish a letter longer than 200 words and prefer them to be shorter if possible.

How to Submit Letters:
Email: ENRletters@mcgraw-hill.com
Mail: 2 Penn Plaza, New York, NY 10121-2298
Fax: 212-904-2980

Please include an address and daytime and evening phone numbers on all letters. We reserve the right to edit letters for clarity, style and space and to use them electronically and in print.
