THE CAMPAIGN FOR BETTER LETTER WRITING

Post Week

In Letter Writing, Post in the World on March 27, 2009 at 11:31 am

It’s been a good week for Post and Letters, and Post Letters! We’re busy planning an action camp for a festival later this year (watch this space). We met with the Royal Academy to discuss their forthcoming exhibition about Van Gogh and his letters (it’s the first show since 1968 to bring so many of his letters to London, and the curatorial team are going to show us how his letters relate, correlate and correspond to his art). We corresponded with the amazing poet, David Morley (whose poetry books we all urge you to read), about the possibility of some writing from him (will say no more for now, but it’s very exciting). And after work today, Philip is meeting with Jonah at the British Library to discuss an e-learning project they’re doing with secondary school kids on how to campaign using letters. So it’s Post A-go-go. Keep writing your letters. We need to fill the hands of our postmen and women with beautiful, loving, complex letters and objects.
