Today we launch the second film in our creative writing series Letters to…where we ask for written responses to different topics. This time we asked for a ‘Letter to…my period’.
The chosen letter, written by Kerri Clarence, summed up lots of experiences and feelings described in many of the submissions, from your first period to how your relationship with you period might change with age. We are delighted to launch our film on International Day of the Girl.
If you could write a letter to your period, what would you say? Would you tell it how great it is? Would you beg it to stop? Or show up? Do you have some questions for it that you’re too embarrassed to ask anyone else?
Introducing the first film in the Letters to… series produced by Stellar Quines.
Each film is a letter to someone or something that has affected the writer’s life. This first theme was to a woman who was an activist, a feminist, and inspired change and hope.
Letters to…a Woman Who Brings Me Hope in the Dark. We received a great response to our first call-out for Letters to… and the successful letter is currently in rehearsal for filming and will be launched on 1 August – the first preview of Propeller. Read more
