“Dear Reader, I don’t want you to know who I am, I want to remain anonymous…” starts the first letter in what so far is a series of three.
Letters are popping up in Ramsbottom, created by an anonymous author who only goes by the moniker: iwriteletterstopeople on Instagram.
The letters talk about the author not knowing how they can make a difference to the world, and that writing these letters might be one way.
The first letter was discovered on the Bridge over the River Irwell on the way into Nuttall Park on the 25th of June.
Since then two more have appeared, both again in or around Nuttall Park. The second on the 26th of June, the third on the 27th.
“Open Me” say the envelopes, and the finder that does is greeted by a well written letter of joy and encouragement.
I don’t know who the author is, they’ve indicated that they are only 18 years old, but they’re kind of like a literary Banksy. Created in secret, planned and hidden for someone to find.
Well, literary Banksy, if you’re reading this, I like your approach and bravery. Using something as simple as pen and paper to make a difference, no matter how small.
