Pens, Paper, Envelopes 2023


Pens, Paper, Envelopes has grown out of the very human need to connect. The simple aim of this project is to share stories through intergenerational letter writing. Writers Jane Pugh, Mark Crees and Sarah Connors met with individuals in Coastline Housing and in Camborne and Redruth to share tales, which prompted letter exchanges with children from Troon, Weeth & Kehelland Primary Schools. Here’s just 3 of the 14 short stories. The illustrations are by the children supported by artist Keith Sparrow.

Sausage Rolling Pin by Mark Crees (from a tale told by Elizabeth)
Without a Dicky-bird by Jon (from a tale told by John)
Mother by Sarah Connors (from a tale told by Margert)
