The Forum is our letters column, responses from readers to articles and videos we've published. Each letter is limited to 300 words.

Because of space constraints we cannot print everything we get and we sometimes have to trim for length or edit for context. Street addresses are omitted to maintain the author’s privacy; those wishing to correspond directly with authors may send letters to Friends Journal to be forwarded.

Comments left on individual articles in the web edition are also considered for the Forum. Responses can also be submitted by email to or mailed to us.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
