General news items
Email press releases and community calendar items to email@example.com.
Email obituaries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Obituaries must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday to appear in the next day’s edition. The Delaware Gazette doesn’t print on Sunday and Monday, so any obituaries submitted over the weekend will print in Tuesday’s edition.
Letters to the editor
Email letters to the editor to email@example.com.
Letters should be limited to 500 words or less. We no longer accept handwritten or typed letters.
All letters must include the writer’s name, address and daytime phone number. The Gazette may call the number to verify authorship of the letter. Anonymous letters, form letters, letters over 500 words, or those without a phone number will not be published.
In addition, letters that consist of personal attacks on another letter writer or contain profanity will not be published. Please be civil.
The Gazette reserves the right to condense and correct letters without altering intent. All letters become the property of The Gazette.
