Letters welcome

Support Local Journalism


The Winters Express encourages readers to submit letters of general interest to the Winters community. The deadline for Letters to the Editor is noon on Mondays for publication that week. If Monday is a federal holiday, letters are due by noon on the Friday before that holiday.

Letters may be mailed or hand-delivered to:

The Winters Express
c/o Taylor Buley
203 1st Street
Winters, CA 95694

Email letters to: news@wintersexpress.com

Letters should not exceed 250 words.

We reserve the right to edit or reject any letter. Letters must be legibly signed by the writer. However, we may withhold writers’ names from publication if there is a legitimate reason, such as fear of reprisal. We reserve the right to determine legitimacy.

We will accept “thank you” letters naming local individuals and businesses only. Non-local names will be edited out. “Thank you” notices containing non-local individuals or businesses must be published as paid advertising. Email to: ads@wintersexpress.com.


This is a form to submit a Letter to the Editor to be published in the Winters Express, print edition. The submission deadline is noon on Mondays for publication that week. Please note: If Monday is a federal holiday, the deadline is early and will be Friday at noon for publication the following week.
  • Street address and other information are required for verification and not for publication. City, state and name are published along with a letter.
