    Episode 5 - Post Marked: Pipers Reach

    About 18 months ago two writers got together to experiment with a much underused literary form - the letter. They would take on the role of two characters, teenage friends who come into contact 20 years later.

    Separated by time and life's experience, three seasons of writing chronicle the story of a teenage love unfulfilled, resumed as adults.

    Do we all have someone who we never had a chance to tell told how much we loved them? Was there someone who we wished had made a move but didn't. This is the story of Jude and Ella Louise and its called Post Marked: Piper's Reach.

    In this interview the Piper's Reach authors Adam Byatt and Jodi Cleghorn let us behind the scenes and reveal what a wonderful experiences the project has been for them and for the fans.
