Now that the latest editorial team have
flown the nest, we’re aware that it's been a while since our last blog
post and with the next issue fast approaching the deadline we thought we would
take a moment to reflect on the lack of theme for the issue 6.
We could be wrong but we think it may
have had a positive effect on our submissions. This time round, we have
received more letters than we've ever had which covered a range of
topics. Some of these letters appeared to correspond to previous themes, so we
have had letters of complaint, letters of protest, and letters home. We have
had stories, poetry, a reimagining of a fairytale
character and locks of hair. There were a number of letters detailing
hospital visits and operations; perhaps the future of the NHS is something that
is on the collective minds of contributors? Thanks to the hard work of our
submissions editor this year we also appear to have more letters than ever
before from overseas some of which have made their way into the forthcoming
The more that we think about, the more
it seems that the lack of theme is pushing the boundaries of the quality, depth
and creativity of the submissions we’ve received so for the meantime we’re
going to stick with it. We hope you enjoying writing the letters as much
as we enjoy reading them and we’re looking forward to the submissions for Issue
7: closing date is September 15th, address is the usual….
