A Letter to an Author

Today you are going to start composing a letter to the author of your in-class novel.

The letter should serve as an evaluation of the novel.

First and foremost, it should be complementary.

Second, consider how the novel has influenced you and why…be as specific as you can.

Third, ask a question…a legitimate question about the writing or about a theme presented in the novel. Or you can ask about the author’s writing process…

Ultimately, you want the author to see how the work has changed your perspective on something.
