    The success of last year's Marble Fiction Project, as well as frequent requests, has inspired us to once again put a call out to all aspiring writers to set pen to paper!  This year's prompt, Letters to..., is a foray into the world of epistolary novels.  This style of fiction first gained popularity in the 17th and 18th centuries, and is a form in which most or all of the plot is advanced by the letters or journal entries of one or more characters.

    Please join us at the information session to pick up your notebook.

    Some examples of epistolary novels are:

    The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

    Dracula by Bram Stoker

    Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding

    The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer

    A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

    Uncommon Valour by John Stevens

    Griffin and Sabine by Nick Bantock

    The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga (winner of the Man Booker prize 2008)
