What is editorial policy and why is it important?

Editorial Policy

Establishing editorial policy and style guidelines for your newsletter will help avoid confusion and controversy. Try to strike a happy medium by printing a balanced range of views with these suggested general guidelines: 1) Don't ever insult any group or individual; 2) Let integrity be your guide (not power and money); 3) Back up all argumentative statements or issues with evidence; 4) Remember who your audience is and write for them; and 5) Spell out any rules for specific writing styles like abbreviations, punctuation, etc.
