English 10: Writing Portfolio
Catholic Memorial High School
|Dear Debbie Taylor,
My name is Allen Harris. I am a 15 year old boy from Boston, mass. I am a student at Catholic
memorial high school. I am writing to you because I read a piece of your writing and I really
enjoyed it. It would really excite me if you can visit can visit my school.
In my English class we are studying British Authors. Since you are from Cardiff, Wales Engles, you
are one of the authors we studied. I know that in Cardiff, England Wales there native language is
welsh. I find it interesting that your books aren’t in welsh.
I know you have won the Northern Arts Award in 1997. I find you as a very imaginative writer. I
know that you are the editor of the magazine Mslexia. It is the fastest growing magazine in the UK.
I know you have written many books such as my children my gold, which was a short listed for the
Fawcett prize. You also have written the fourth Queen which was your first novel. I really enjoy
your style of writing how you put jokes. For example, “Phew! It smells worse than a tinker's
knob down here.” I really like a writer that has more than one book and do more than one thing.
It would be nice if you could come to my school and speak to us, since we have been studying
British authors. It would be nice to meet a British author. It was also help my classmates to get to
know about a British author.
I would really like to know how you got into writing and why you write. If you do not come it will
limit my knowledge to get to know about professional writing. I would really benefit from you coming
to speak to my school. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.
