Women of Letters raises funds for Edgars Mission, everyone including the speakers donate their time. I love doing this gig and gladly donate my time. In fact if I’m not doing the event photography for them, you’ll find me in the audience.
I never research who will be speaking until after the gig. I go into the gig with no preconceived ideas about you I will meet. When I do research them, I am always amazed and a little humbled by their talent and humility.
Women of Letters is an afternoon that celebrates a diverse range of strong female talent whilst simultaneously raising funds for Victorian animal rescue shelter, Edgar’s Mission.
Co-curated by Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire, the monthly occasion brings together five of Melbourne’s best and brightest writers, musicians, politicians and comedians in celebration of the beautiful lost art of letter-writing.
