Dear Caroline,

Each year, the English Department of our high school participates in the writing competition sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English.

Your teachers have identified you as a strong writer, so we would like to invite you to participate in our in-house contest to select our school’s two junior nominees for the NCTE Competition.

The timed writing you complete on February 1 or 2 and the writing sample you provide will be judged in-house. Should you be selected as one of the two nominees from our school, your name will be provided to NCTE and you will be asked to do another timed writing in late March or early April. This second timed writing, along with a writing sample of your choice, will be submitted to NCTE for judging.

Congratulations on your initial nomination! I look forward to seeing you take part in the NCTE writing competition.  Please respond to this email to confirm with Mrs. Adams that you will be attending, and on which date.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Budd
Director, Writing Center


Well, shit.
