Event description

Description

Phil Madden has been writing to a prisoner on Death Row in South Carolina for many years through the organisation Life Lines. Though they haven’t met they have become close friends. Life Lines links UK letter writers with prisoners on Death Row in the United States. It is the first established organisation of its kind, and has spread both nationally and internationally, with members all over the world.

This participative event will discuss the obligations and rewards of Death Row letter writing and also, more generally, the enduring uniqueness of all letter writing in the social media age.

Phil will be featured in a documentary by Shuffle Films on UK letter writers’ experience. This session will be filmed by Shuffle Films for potential inclusion in their forthcoming film and will be followed by a talk from the film-makers.

Admission price of £7 includes the cost of both Phil Madden’s and Shuffle Films’ talks.
