1. What’s the difference between a letter and a guest column? The main difference is length. Letters tend to be short, 150-250 word submissions, and are often quick responses to something in the news or something that ran recently on the opinion page. Letters generally are making quick points rather than full-fledged arguments. To get a good idea of the spirit of letters, check out letters to the editor in the New York Times, which are restricted strictly to 150 words. Guest columns, on the other hands, are longer pieces, though are limited to 700 words. Guest columns usually address a new topic that hasn’t been written about before or are long-form responses (usually in opposition) to opinion pieces that ran recently.
