Women of Letters, a series of events curated by Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire, was designed in part to revive the lost art of letter writing and in part to highlight a diverse range of female talent. The events raise money for Edgar's Mission (the Victorian animal rescue shelter). Each event has a theme (To My Nemesis, To My First Boss, To the Night I'd Rather Forget), and about five writers write letters on this theme. Over the past year, they've built up an impressive list of contributors, including Judith Lucy, Helen Razer, Noni Hazlehurst, Jennifer Byrne, Claudia Karvan, Tara Moss, Alice Pung, Karen Hitchcock and Julia Zemiro. They also held a Men of Letters event, featuring Paul Kelly, Dave Graney, John Safran, Eddie Perfect, Ben Salter, Tim Rogers and Bob Ellis.
Marieke Hardy is a writer, broadcaster, producer and artist. She is a regular panellist on ABC's The Book Club, the creator of the hit TV show Laid, and a curator of live art. A collection of her essays was published in 2011.
