Reader Submission Guidelines

Chadds Ford Live encourages letters to the editor. The recommended length is 100 to 300 words with no formatting. Our website formats the content, and even something as simple as bullet points would create problems. Please include your full name and township.

For readers who want to explore a more complicated issue, we also accept columns, which should be approximately 500 to 700 words long – again without formatting. We recommend considering the column as a personal message, using a conversational tone that will resonate with the general public.

Please submit columns as Word attachments to Rich at

Chadds Ford Live reserves the right to edit submissions for length and clarity.

Photographs are accepted as are wedding, engagement and other announcements.

Thank you for participating in our online community.
