Letters about literature

The Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, in cooperation with affiliate state centers for the book, invites readers in grades 4 through 12 to enter Letters About Literature, a national reading-writing contest. To enter, readers write a personal letter to an author, living or dead, from any genre-- fiction or nonfiction, contemporary or classic, explaining how that author’s work changed the student’s way of thinking about the world or themselves.

Letters About Literature will be accepting entries for its next round of competition beginning September 2005. The deadline for submissions to LAL 2005-2006 will be December 1, 2005(on the postmark). State winners will be announced in March 2006, and national winners announced in April 2006.
