The strongly worded letter – while generally associated with complaints, we’ve given a panel of incredible writers the opportunity to write a strongly worded letter of thanks instead. Come and hear masters of their craft address a writer or person in their life that left a lasting impression on them, followed by a wider conversation on the story behind their strong words.
