Write an Author Campaign- Send In Letters to Lisa McMann

David and his friend Eddie wrote letters to their favorite authors in hope of getting a reply...Now You Can Too!


Between November 1- 30 submit your letters to New York Times Bestselling Author, Lisa McMann. In order to do so, you must FIRST donate at least one dollar to either of the following charities picked by author Lee Bantle:


Doctors without Borders- http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org


Freedom to Marry- http://www.freedomtomarry.org


All letters must be emailed to the following address-
lauren51990 AT aol DOT com


The winning letter(s) will be announced sometime in December. After that point, Lisa McMann will either email or hand-write her reply and we’ll send it your way once it’s ready!
Only one letter per person - Open to Anyone!
The judges will be Lauren Becker and maybe author Lee Bantle- who created this event (we have to have judges because the authors who participate in this event don't have the time to read every single letter, so we'll try and find the one we feel most deserves a reply-go for emotion, go for humor, go for showing you are a TRUE fan, it doesn't matter)!
All letters should be no longer than two pages
I have a poster with most of this information. It's a Word Document -pretty simple, but it's for anyone that wants to promote this off line and I would really appreciate it if you did. Good for schools, book clubs, libraries, coffee shops, local businesses, bookstores, etc. If you would like the "poster" then please email me: lauren51990 AT aol DOT com and put Write an Author Poster in the subject!!
