Proudly Announcing: The Letters Page, Vol 4 

And what emerges is a literary journal of unusual warmth, compassion and humanity, a journal which necessarily foregrounds the addressee rather than the self, which is in dialogue as part of its very conception.  – Pete Kirwan

The Letters Page, Vol 4

The Letters Page, Vol 4, printed by Dizzy Ink 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.

In this issue...

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.
