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.
Letters to…the Woman in Charge
We received a wide range of letters, some of which made us laugh and some which took time to process before moving on to the next.
The letter chosen was from Dorothy Bruce who addressed her letter to Theresa May. Dorothy’s letter has spark, energy and is an important declaration in our current political climate, especially with the deadline fast approaching for Brexit (29th March).
Please watch our short film featuring Sally Reid.
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 filmed 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 launched on International Women’s Day. Unfortunately, the full video is no longer available but you can watch the trailer below.
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.
