It’s still the middle of the summer, but the annual Letters About Literature writing contest is coming soon! The Utah Center for the Book duties are now being led by the Utah Humanities Council. The Utah State Library is coordinating activities for Letters About Literature in Utah.
We are fortunate to have the Salt Lake Community College Community Writing Center as a partner this year. They will host a two-day workshop to help youth in 4th-12th grades to develop a reflective, personal letter to any author that explains how that author’s book inspired a change in the student’s life. The workshop will take place on October 8 and 15, 1-3 pm both days. Register by contacting the Community Writing Center at 801-957-2192.
Information packets should be available in early September and contest entries are due by January 6, 2012.
More information will be posted when it is available!
