Contest information

The Library of Michigan is announcing the 2015 Letters about Literature program. We are the Michigan host for this national program from the Library of Congress. It is 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. Children and teens can participate on their own or as part of a library or class project.
We have posted an explanatory letter and a sample entry form at The 2015 letters will be due in two waves. Level III entries (grades (9-12) have a deadline of December 15, 2014 and Level I and II entries (grades 4-6 and 7-8) have a deadline of January 15, 2015. The state and national winners will be announced in May 2015. You can find more information about the national program at and the Michigan program at Please find the 2015 letter and entry form at the direct links below.
