Dear Stephen King,
I am a grade ten student and I am writing this letter on behalf of the school to convince you to come to Sussex Regional High School.
As a writer of your stature, if may not seem appealing to invite you to the small town on Sussex in New Brunswick. The truth is, Sussex Regional High School would be honored if you would dedicate a day of your time speaking to us.
We would all understand if you could not make it because it is expensive to come and you are likely much too busy. Really, why even come to Sussex? It is such a small place! Before you know it, you could have schools from all over inviting you to come visit them; smaller than Sussex. If you let your guard down then you will be busy for the rest of your career…
With your writing ability and knowledge, you could help enhance the writing performance of the students that attend Sussex Regional High School. The thing about having a real live author coming in could inspire us to be better writers. It also would be a wonderful addition to the people that have visited Sussex. For example, the Queen has visited a small place like this. It could not be too hard to make it here, could it?
It would be truly a grand experience for our town to have someone as famous as you to visit us.
I hope that you will take what I have said into consideration. Once again, just remember how wonderful it would be for you to join us even though it is such a small place. Just think! It could inspire us all.
