Playing a relevant role as a forum for public debate within press publications, letters to the editor are a complex social space highly mediated by newsroom routines. Although they are less studied than other topics within journalism studies, letters' significance can be related to the history of the press, its relationship to democracy and citizenship, newsroom practices, and cultural construction of the public.
