Letter writing competition

chris-russell-ten-lettersIf you could write a letter to someone just before you died, what would you say? Darton, Longman and Todd are hosting a letter writing competition to celebrate the release of Chris Russell’s Ten Letters: to be delivered in the event of my death.
The top three letters, as judged by author Chris Russell and a representative of DLT Publishers, will receive a signed copy of the book and have their letter published on the DLT website.

Competition Guidelines:

  • Read the first letter in Chris Russell’s book on the DLT website
  • Write a letter in fewer than 500 words to a real person.
  • You may change the name of the person to protect their identity.
  • The letter should address an individual but have a wider scope dealing with issues pertinent to society at large.
  • Submit your letter as an attachment with ’10 letters comp’ in the subject line to CarolanneM @ darton-longman-todd.co.uk
  • Closing date for submission is Friday 19 October 2012.
  • Entrance is free.
