The Hoxton Street Monster Postal Service
Ghoulishly good fun.
In caves and cupboards the world over, there are monsters – monsters who are curious about humans and would love to hear from them. Meanwhile, there are many young people who’d love to write to them.
Together with a group of excellent writers, I helped the Ministry of Stories launch the Hoxton Street Monster Supplies Postal Service. For a small fee, humans of all ages can write to a monster and receive a personal reply, with all proceeds going toward the Ministry’s creative writing workshops.
We created six monster personas, plus guidelines and a training workshop that enabled an army of volunteers to write on the monsters’ behalf. You can discover the joy of monster letter writing yourself at Hoxton Street Monster Supplies.
