Letters about Literature

Letters about Literature is a national reading-writing contest that invites readers in grades 4 through 12 to write letters to authors of books that have changed their lives. This program gives students the opportunity to reflect deeply on a book. As readers, they come to understand how literature is more than assignment, but also a life changing experience. You can find contest information, curriculum materials and more at www.michigan.gov/mcfb or www.lettersaboutliterature.org. Winners receive cash prizes for themselves and their community or school library. The deadline for submissions is December 10, 2010. Winners will be announced in spring 2011.

One Response to “Letters about Literature”

  1. Thanks, Flint Public Library, for spreading the word about LAL. This is a writing contest where kids get to share their personal response to a book–no book summaries or fan letters. We hope lots of Flint, Michigan, young readers will visit our website at http://www.lettersaboutliterature.org to learn how to enter and win some cool prizes.
