Sitting down, taking pen to paper and writing a letter is fast becoming a lost art. Sitting around and talking about words and correspondence is too. Well, almost. If there's one thing that Women of Letters aims to achieve, it's showcasing the merits of both. If there's another, it's doing so with some fantastic women.
For the event's ninth Brisbane outing, new host and co-curator Angie Hart plus founding co-curator Marieke Hardy will help prose flow freely as they take over The Zoo from 3pm on June 18. And, they'll have company: actor, writer and theatre-maker, Merlynn Tong, journalist Pip Courtney, theatre director Paige Rattray, film and TV actor Sibylla Budd, youth arts facilitator Claire Christian and criminal defence lawyer Debbie Kilroy. Now there's a squad of formidable females.
As is the custom, each will pen a letter, with this session dedicated to the topic of 'A Letter to My Second Chance'. Hear their scribblings, soak up their insights, and drink wine and eat cheese while you do so. Getting tickets asap is recommended, as Women in Letters is always popular.
