Guidelines

The Guidelines for the 2017-2018 Letters About Literature program are now available directly from the Library of Congress website.

Download the Massachusetts LAL Guidelines.

Please read all of the Guidelines before you submit your letters as some details have changed, including the mailing address for submissions.

This year, entries will be sent to the Library of Congress for initial screening.  Semifinalist letters will come to Massachusetts for statewide judging.

In addition, we have returned to a single due date for all levels:  December 9, 2017.

Please note, however, that we understand that Levels I and II may need a year to adjust lesson plan calendars, and so if your entries arrive in early January they will be accepted.

If you have other questions, please email us at the program address: letters@massbook.org

Thanks!
