We are always touched and grateful to the many people who write letters for Donate A Letter. One of those people is Melissa Fu, and so it makes us doubly proud that Melissa is this year shortlisted for the Wasafiri New Writing Prize.
Wasafiri is a leading magazine for international contemporary writing. Launched in 1984, it has published many distinguished writers including Ben Okri and Michael Ondaatje. In 2009 Wasafiri launched a writing prize to support new writers with no limit on age, gender, nationality or background.
This year Melissa is shortlisted in the Life Writing category for her piece, Mixed Blessings - A Primer.
We wish her lots of luck for this Thursday 19th October when the winners will be announced at The People's Palace at Queen Mary University.
