With sold-out live events around the country and a bestselling book, Women of Letters have revived the gentle art of letter writing. In this all-new collection of missives, a dazzling array of noteworthy Australians share their wisdom, wit and wildest dreams.

Here Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire have preserved a year of captivating correspondence. The irresistible line-up features Kate Miller-Heidke writing A love letter to her twelve-year-old self; Di Morrissey recounting a dramatic encounter with a brood of chooks and a wily fox in a letter To a little white lie; and Ita Buttrose imagining an alternative life as an opera singer as she writes To the life I could have lived.

A wide range of gentlemen friends have been welcomed into the fold as well, with correspondents including Shaun Micallef, Julian Burnside, Hamish Blake and David Williamson all penning letters 'To the woman who changed my life'.

This funny, touching and charming collection is a delightful presentation of Australian talent from all walks of life.

sincerely, great writing


Great stories_ deserves multiple readings



Sincerely wonderful


The format of this book makes it easy to pick up and put down, though I read it straight through. Each contributor is given a subject but may interpret it anyway they wish. There is enough variety in the responses by subjects to maintain interest from Jaqui Paynes missives to her six children to Libbi Gorr waxing poetic about her iPhone. The tone of the letters veer from the intimate and serious to the irreverent and comedic. While Kamahl, for example, pays tribute to his wife of 45 years with a touching poem, Tim McGuire thanks Buffy the Vampire Slayer for all she taught him.
