Paper Pen Envelopes was created by The Writers’ Block. Due to lockdown restrictions, many people have become very isolated and have experienced loneliness. The simple aim of this project is to share stories through letter writing.
Writers Sarah Connors and Polly Roberts have been meeting with individuals in and around Camborne and Redruth, sharing tales which have prompted letter exchanges with children from Trewirgie, Penponds and St John’s Primary Schools. Some of these stories have been recorded and others printed on postcards.
The project has been funded by Cornwall Community Foundation and supported by Coastline.
