The Writer to Writer Challenge is an annual competition for adult learners in public library literacy programs. Learners write a letter to an author of a book or magazine telling them how their lives were influenced by what they read.
The competition is sponsored by the Southern California Library Literacy Network (SCLLN), and the winners and runners-up were recognized at an awards ceremony on March 5 during the SCLLN conference. Winners in each category had an opportunity to read their letters during the ceremony, and all winners and runners-up received a copy of a book that has been published with their letters.
All learners who submitted a letter received a certificate for their participation. There were 97 entries from 16 libraries throughout southern California. READ MORE @
