On October 6, 2009, Ari Armstrong held a workshop for local activists interested in improving their skills at writing LTEs (letters to the editor).

His own detailed blog post can be found here at, “Activism and Writing Letters to the Editor“.

I’d also like to highlight his two short videos discussing the principles and techniques of effective LTE writing:

Part 1

Part 2

Using these techniques, the activists in Front Range Objectivism have had LTEs published in our regional newspapers, including the Denver Post, Colorado Springs Gazette, Boulder Daily Camera, Fort Collins Coloradan, Pueblo Chieftain, and (before it folded), The Rocky Mountain News.

We have also had multiple LTEs published in national and major regional publications including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Boston Globe, and Los Angeles Times.

Anyone who want to refine their LTE writing skills should also read the following:

How to Write an Effective Letter to the Editor” (Ayn Rand Institute)

Thank you, Ari, for organizing this workshop!
