Texas 4th-12th graders are invited to participate in Letters About Literature, an annual writing competition administered by the Texas Center for the Book. Students read a book or poem and write a letter to an author—living or dead—explaining how his or her work changed their view of themself or the world. Letters are not being accepted at this time. The Letters About Literature Texas program is on pause as of October 2023. Check back for updates on its status in 2024, which will also be announced via press release and TSLAC social media.

Information about the operation of this program can be found elsewhere on this website, including letters and videos of past winners.
