2006 Writer to Writer
First Place Winner
The Writer to Writer Challenge is simple; adult learners are asked to write a letter to the author of a book they have read, or listened to, which has really inspired them. Last Year, Project Read's Leona Whytus came in first place for the letter she wrote to Mildred D. Taylor author of Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry which Leona read as a member of the Wednesday Night Readers Book Club.
The State Library has even provided a very helpful collection of writing exercises for tutor-learner teams to use in preparation for submitting a letter to the Writer to Writer Challenge. These materials, along with the official Writer to Writer entry forms, are available in the Project Read office. We will also be happy to mail these packets to tutor-learner teams who may not be meeting at the Main Library. We hope to make the forms available online soon.
