Encourage Students to Enter the "Letters About Literature" Writing Contest!

Encourage readers grades 4-12 to enter the national "Letters About Literature Writing Competition." To enter, readers write a personal letter to an author, living or dead, from any genre - fiction or non-fiction, contemporary or classic, explaining how that author's work changed the student's way of thinking about the world or themselves. DEADLINE: December 9, 2017. Visit the ReadSC website for contest guidelines, teacher guides, and additional information. Each year, the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress, in partnership with affiliate state centers for the book, invites readers to enter. South Carolina state winners receive cash prizes, up to $100, provided by the South Carolina State Library Foundation.
