A collection of correspondence from the hugely popular Women of Letters literary events.

With sold-out live events around the country and a bestselling book, Women of Letters have revived the gentle art of letter writing. In this all-new collection of missives, a dazzling array of noteworthy Australians share their wisdom, wit and wildest dreams.

Here Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire have preserved a year of captivating correspondence. The irresistible line-up features Kate Miller-Heidke writing 'A love letter' to her twelve-year-old self; Di Morrissey recounting a dramatic encounter with a brood of chooks and a wily fox in a letter 'To a little white lie'; and Ita Buttrose imagining an alternative life as an opera singer as she writes 'To the life I could have lived'.

A wide range of gentlemen friends have been welcomed into the fold as well, with correspondents including Shaun Micallef, Julian Burnside, Hamish Blake and David Williamson all penning letters 'To the woman who changed my life'.

This funny, touching and charming collection is a delightful presentation of Australian talent from all walks of life.

All royalties for this book will go to Edgar's Mission animal rescue shelter.

'The individual voices of the authors shine through, sometimes lighthearted and whimsical, sometimes poignant and nostalgic. Sincerely is a potent tribute to an art that is shown to be not only a lot of fun but also very much alive.' Courier Mail

'It's rare to read a book in which barely a page feels wasted, but Sincerely is such a book.' Big Issue
