Letters About Literature

At Mepham High School, we like to give our students many opportunities to showcase their talents. One way we do this is through writing contests, like Mepham's Literary Magazine Fragments and PTA's Reflections. Letters About Literature is another wonderful contest that we are encouraging all of our students to participate in. It is a reading and writing contest for students in grades 4-12.

From the Letters about Literature Website: 
"Students are asked to read a book, poem or speech and write to that author (living or dead) about how the book affected them personally. Letters are judged on state and national levels... Here are the Rules and Guidelines." 

Submission deadlines to the Library of Congress national program for high school students is:
December 15, 2014

For more information, please see our English Department Chairperson, Marie Netto in the Learning Center (Room 203).
