# How to decrease the gap between the title and the date in article?

I have the following .tex code:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage{titling}

\begin{document}

\title{Letter}
\setlength{\droptitle}{-10em}

%\author{}

\maketitle

\end{document}


As you can see I'm not using the author field, and I have pushed the title part a bit up. Though, now the gap between the title and the date is a bit too much for me. Is there a way to shorten that gap, in the sense that the date and all the text under it moves a bit up closer to the title?

With \maketitlehookc, which is what is inserted between author and date. Similarly \maketitlehooka denotes code inserted before title, \maketitlehookb is inserted between title and author and \maketitlehookd is inserted after date.

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage{titling}
\setlength{\droptitle}{-10em}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\title{Letter}
%\author{}
\renewcommand\maketitlehookc{\vspace{-10ex}}
\begin{document}

\title{Letter}
\maketitle
\lipsum

\end{document}
