Letters to… is a quarterly writing opportunity where we invite you to write a letter in response to a theme. We choose one which is then performed by a professional actor, filmed and shared on Stellar Quines’ website and social media.
Our next creative writing project is just in time for International Women’s Day and to celebrate we are inviting submissions for Letters to a woman in charge whether it be your boss, Nicola Sturgeon or yourself!
Submissions are now closed. The selection process will now take place and the launch date of the new film is 8 March International Women’s Day
We welcome applications from people of any gender identity, from anywhere in the world.
Letters to…my period
Everyone has a period story, but we don’t often share them openly. ‘Letters to my period’ was an opportunity for anyone to tell us their story and for it to be shared with the ambition of encouraging conversation about periods, and the many connecting issues, from period poverty to reproductive health and wellbeing.
Stellar Quines presents Kerri Clarence‘s letter to her period which talks about their relationship from their first meeting to motherhood and the feelings and experiences that follow. We are delighted to launch this film on International Day of the Girl which is a day where we are reminded to recognise girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.
Letters to…. a woman who brings me hope in the dark
This was an opportunity to tell us about someone who gives you the energy and determination to keep on going, whatever your struggle is and however they encourage you. Rosie Priest wrote a beautiful and moving letter that addressed an issue that so many women face with hard decisions to make for themselves and their children.
