How you cite always depends on the required citation style. Examples below are given for MLA and APA styles from the Purdue OWL:

MLA Style

An Editorial & Letter to the Editor

Cite as you would any article in a periodical, but include the designators "Editorial" or "Letter" to identify the type of work it is.

Hamer, John. Letter. American Journalism Review, Dec. 2006/Jan. 2007, p. 7.
