Ever wished you could write to your favorite TV celebrity? What's stopping you?

With a little research, you can tell the stars exactly what's on your mind. First, write a short letter to the star of your choice. You can even write to a fictional character if you'd like!

Now comes the research. With your parents' permission, search the Internet for your the official website of your favorite show. From that site you can find a link to the network that broadcasts your show.

Look for a mailing address at the network. Then use that address on your letter, along with the name of the show. Send it off, and in 4 - 6 weeks, you may even get a reply!

How can writing a letter teach you about writing for a newspaper? You'll find out with the next pen pal activity.
