October 25th 2013, Teitho headquarters

Dear Teitho author,

we would like to inform you about our new theme for November. Our new challenge is, as you can maybe guess, Letters, suggested by AmazingWriter123.

The cool thing about this theme is, that you can interpret it in any way you want - it can be a topic as well as a form challenge. You can write about letters sent and received, about the different alphabets of Middle-earth, but you can also write your story in the form of a letter, or even more letters exchanged between two persons.

Take a pen and paper, and start writing. How? Well, first you need to invent a letter system, and you have an alphabet. Middle-earth had several of those, reflecting Mr. Tolkien's linguistic hobby: the Elvish tengwar with their own history and variations, Dwarven runes... Learning to write them, using and interpreting them (or not), this is what your story or picture can be about.

Now put the letters into words and write down what you want to tell to someone far away... and you have a letter. Its content can be very various. It can be a love letter, an order from a king to one of his lords, a letter to the family... Letters had to be especially important to all those who men who served in the army far away from home, as their only contact with their loved ones. You can create a story or picture about writing, sending or receiving a letter, or about the importance of such letter in a given situation.

The third option is writing your story in the form of a letter, or letter exchange. The letters themselves can be about anything, from love letters to official summons to a trial, and everything between.

And the winners are:

An important Letter by nyleve
An Unexpected Letter by Linda Hoyland 2nd place
Dearest Adar by Snowy the Sane Fangirl
Five Letters by Darkover
Letter to my sons by lotrlover2931
Letters from Afar by Rhovandil
Malangethas - Runes of Gold by LegolasLover2003
Speak, Friend, and Enter by Suzelle
The Sealed Letter by Rhymer 1st place
Threads of Family by Canafinwe 3rd place

In pictures:

The Line of Durin by legolaslover2003 1st place

Happy reading!

Sincerely,
Your Teitho-moderators,
StarLight and Mirach
