Typesetting Fun – ICVWW Braddon Project

At the moment I’m gearing up for a project in collaboration with the ICVWW at Canterbury Christ Church University. 

After the success of Letterpress Reimagined last year, this time we are heading a bit further back in time, to the writing of Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1835-1915). 

We’re running a creative writing competition which encourages entrants to submit a 150 word piece on events surrounding Braddon’s best known text, Lady Audley’s Secret (1862). Full information is here

Eight winners will have their entries letterpress printed in a booklet bound by the wonderful Anna Fewster. Winners will also be able to take part in the printing process via a special workshop using the ICVWW’s Minerva Platen press (ran by me – haha!). 

An overall winner will receive free entry to the forthcoming ICVWW 2nd International Conference. 

You can see some of the entries we have received over at the project blog. And, if I go quiet in May, you can be sure I’m holed up somewhere having typesetting fun!
