Writing Back and Fall into Place Theatre have been awarded a National Lottery Awards for All grant to transform the letters from Writing Back into an intergenerational theatre production.
In a new video, Writing Back pen pals catch up in person and share their experiences of participating in the nationally acclaimed letter-writing project.
Huge congratulations to BA English and Comparative Literature student Laura Manzi, who has received the Outstanding Achievement Award for her involvement in Writing Back and other projects.
Award-winning project Writing Back, which pairs University of Leeds students with older local residents as pen pals, has been celebrated in national media throughout the festive season.
This award-winning project, which sees School of English students become pen pals with older local residents, is opening to international students for the first time thanks to additional funding.
The School's Writing Back project was recently featured on Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4. Students Mailies Fleming and Yunfei Xu were interviewed alongside the project founder, Georgina Binnie.
