Speak Up! April 15 Workshop Explains How to Craft an Effective Letter to the Editor

Rehoboth Beach, DE –  The public is invited to a free workshop to learn how to craft an effective Letter to the Editor, to be held on April 15 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the South Coastal Library in Bethany Beach.

This FREE event is brought to you by the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays and the Clean Water: Delaware’s Clear Choice campaign along with co-hosts: Sussex Health and Environmental Network and the Socially Responsible Agricultural Project.

Do you have a concern and want to be heard by your friends, neighbors, and legislators? We’ll teach you how to write an effective Letter to the Editor: an opinion piece that can be submitted for print in local newspapers. Publisher of the Cape Gazette, Dennis Forney, will also be on hand to answer your questions about the newspaper industry and give tips on getting your Letter to the Editor in the paper!

“Some of our supporters have expressed that they feel their voices are being drowned out by people with larger platforms, more influence, and more tech knowledge,” explains Katie Young, workshop facilitator and Communications Specialist for the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays. “We want to reintroduce people to the basics! A thoughtful and well-composed Letter to the Editor can still be a great way to cut through the noise.”

Participants should register at www.LTEworkshop19.eventbrite.com. South Coastal Library is located at 43 Kent Avenue, Bethany Beach, Delaware 19930.

This event is part of a larger Water Warrior Workshop series that is hosted statewide by the Clean Water: Delaware’s Clear Choice campaign, a statewide outreach, and education effort focused on securing additional funding for clean water. The goal of this workshop series is to encourage citizens of Delaware to take an active role in protecting water quality in their state.
