WRITING LETTERS AND EMAILS TO AUTHORS AND MAGAZINES

WRITING LETTERS AND EMAILS TO AUTHORS AND MAGAZINES
By
Linda M. Penn

    Has anyone given you a compliment lately?  Maybe just a “thank you” that you were not expecting? 

    Just like you, authors and magazine editors like to hear compliments.  So…how about taking 15-20 minutes with your child and write a letter or email to the author of a favorite book (remember that book you read over and over again – See Blog of March 8, 2014) or the editor of a favorite magazine?

    Tell the author or editor that you liked their story and WHY.  Ask some further QUESTIONS about the topic or give SUGGESTIONS for future writing.  This helps your child to THINK CRITICALLY, rather than just telling you, “Yes, I liked the story.”

    So, how do you know the address or email of an author or editor?  First of all, look in the front or back pages of the story.  Many authors give their contact information and their website address.  Imagine how excited your child will be when, hopefully, a reply comes back.

    One of my elementary classes wrote letters to Judy Blume, as we had just finished reading her book, “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.”  Also, we wrote letters to the Ranger Rick magazine.  We received personal replies from both Judy Blume and the Ranger Rick editor.  Wow, were the children thrilled!

    If you are unable to locate contact information of an author in the actual book, write to the author at the publishing company, which will be listed on the title page.

    You and your child  might also enjoy checking out an author’s website as an extension of your letter writing.  I checked out the sites of some famous children’s authors, including these:  Judy Blume, Shel Silverstein (poet), Dav Pilkey (Capt. Underpants), Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and even Dr. Suess, whose site is still up and running even though he has passed away.  These sites were filled with games, videos, puzzles, color sheets, listings of upcoming events and books, resources for parents, etc.  The Roald Dahl site even had a contest – “The Golden Ticket Sweepstakes.”

    Have fun during these last few days of summer break and give a compliment, a thank you, or a smile to someone!  See you back here the FIRST OF SEPTEMBER for the next monthly Blog – “I CAN’T DO ONE MORE THING!”
