Letters About Literature Contest

THE CONTEST

Books have wings. You can’t see them, but they are there just the same. On books’ wings, readers can soar to new places where they meet intriguing characters and experience exciting adventures. But a book’s wings can also help a reader rise above difficult situations - like peer pressure, bullying or prejudice, or to cope with disappointment and loss.

Have you ever felt the power and lift of literature? Has one book, or perhaps one author, inspired you to change your view of yourself or of the world? If so, we encourage you to enter this year’s Letters About Literature writing competition. All you have to do is write a personal letter to an author, explaining how his or her work affected you.

COMPETITION LEVELS
The contest has three competition levels:
Level I: grades 4-6 Level II: grades 7 & 8 Level III: grades 9-12
