Fall in love with letters again. In an age of email and instant messaging, letter writing is almost a lost art, reserved for sentimental notes to loved ones or long-standing pen pals. The Letters Page, a letters-based literary journal edited by the University of Nottingham’s Jon McGregor, takes submissions entirely through the post; whatever fits into an envelope is considered for publication. Members of the editorial team will host this interactive writing workshop to hone your letter writing skills and get you back in the habit!
