Welcome to The Letters Page
The Letters Page is a literary journal in letters, published by the School of English at the University of Nottingham and edited by Jon McGregor. We publish essays, stories, poetry, memoir, travelogue, and criticism; but all in the form of letters. We are interested in the literary traditions of letter-writing, and in the idea of correspondence in a digital age. We would love to hear from you.
The Letters Page: Volume 4 - Available Now
In this issue, Roddy Doyle writes to us about his mother’s letter writing habit, and how her letters unearthed distant relatives in Long Island; Andika Budiman sends us notes from a bookshop in Indonesia; Sarah Whiteside writes to the Finnish poet, Marko Hautala, and lets us listen in; Som-Mai Nguyen writes to us not once but twice; and Liam Harrison asks if it can really be true that Claire-Louise Bennett is no longer writing, as she claimed in our previous issue.
The Letters Page, Vol 4 is an 80 page craft-bound book with fold-out facsimile reproductions of the original handwritten letters, featuring a screen-printed cover which folds out to form its own mailing package, complete with wax seal.
