Living Letters is a project that aims to increase engagement with literature throughout the local Canberra community, celebrate Canberrans’ existing love of books, and contribute to the ongoing development of literary and artistic community in Canberra. It is funded by a YWCA Canberra Great Ydeas grant.
Living Letters has been composed of both workshop and written pieces. In the current COVID-19 environment, we are no longer able to host in-person Living Letters events at public venues with local authors as guest speakers, such as our past events with novelist Kathryn Hind and poet Anita Patel. However, we have taken part of the project online, publishing a curated series of letters about readers’ relationships with texts, authors, and characters. Your can find these letters here.
We would like to thank YWCA Canberra for their ongoing support of Living Letters.
