Let's Write Together! | Alex Watson & Robert P. Watson's Adult-Student Writing Team Initiative

Encouraging Families and Friends to Read and Write Together

Aloha! Let’s Write Together…

Posted by Alex Watson

I was 11 years old when I woke my father, Robert, early one morning and told him that I was going to write a book. I am grateful that he believed in me, and in 2012, Tsunami, our first co-author venture project was published, with our second book in the works to be published this year!

Writing a book is a lot of work. It also requires patience, discipline, research and, yes, few rewrites! But it is fun and very rewarding. If you are a young reader, know that you, too, can write a book. In 2013, we started a writing contest for kids called Let’s Write Together. Lower, middle and upper school students were invited to submit short stores to the contest, and the winners had their writings published in a book.

The time has come again for our annual Let’s Write Together contest, and at the end of January we will begin the review process to select the winners for this year. It’s not too late to submit your story, if you haven’t already. Just email the story to lwtcontest@gmail.com (click here to view the 2014 LWT Contest Rules). We encourage to get together with you family members, friends, parents or by yourself and get to writing!



Reading together as a family or with friends is a good way to share the experience of a great book. Talking about whichever book I am reading is something I do with my friends or when my family sits down together for dinner. But, as fun as it is to read and talk about our books, wouldn’t it be really cool to write a book together?That’s what Let’s Write Together is all about. We have lots of awesome things planned: book signings, a weekly blog where I’ll share ideas and tips, plus the opportunity to ask me questions about our books or writing in general! Be sure to like our Facebook page, so you can ride the wave with me. Also, check us out on CSPAN2 Book TV on April 7 at 5:00 pm. – http://t.co/t5Cu8FlE8b~Alex Watson
