Letters to Myself


The Letters to Myself team will be popping up at The Word to hand out free letter writing kits and speak to people about the project, which is inviting people to write a letter to their past, present or future self. Come along to pick up a kit!

You can give your past-self advice about love, describe your ambitions to your future-self or write about what’s currently happening in your life, the choice is really up to you.

Once you’ve completed your letter simply post it in our pop-up post box, your letters will then be used anonymously as part of a verbatim style piece, which will combine all the experiences of those who have shared them.

The team will be in The Word from Saturday 21 until Saturday 28 October between 12-4pm everyday.
