Event description
Come along for an evening celebrating the power and beauty of literary correspondence in one of London's trendiest neighbourhoods.

About this event

Collate's ongoing letter-writing competition sees students from across the UK enter by writing a letter to any politician in the world. First, second and third place will receive £1000, £500 and £250 respectively. Judging the competition is:

  • Lord Charles Moore - former editor-in-chief at The Spectator and The Telegraph, now a columnist at The Telegraph
  • Olivia Utley - assistant Comment editor at The Telegraph
  • Phil Collins - former chief speechwriter for Tony Blair in Downing St., now a columist at The New Statesman

The evening will include an exhibition of the 30-40 best entrants, printed and displayed on a selection of G. F Smith's beautiful, world-renowned paper. The winner will be announced for the first time on the night.

Come along and meet the Collate and G. F Smith teams. Expect free drinks, a warm atmosphere, Collate and G. F Smith goodies and other letter-related fun stuff.
