Enter Cathy Cassidy’s Love from Me letter writing competition


To celebrate Cathy Cassidy’s new book, Love from Lexie, we want you to write to your future self.



Lexie enjoys writing letters – to everyone from her lost mother to the ‘men in suits’ trying to close down her local library.


To celebrate Lexie and her love for letting writing, we’re giving you the chance to win a signed copy of Love from Lexie and a beautiful stationery set!


All you have to do is write a letter to the future you. What do you hope you’re doing in the future – are you a world leader, a teacher, a pop star? Write about your dreams and what you hope you’ve achieved. You could also give the future you advice and tell yourself what you’re excited about.


Simply download the template below and then upload your postcard. Or you can send in a physical copy to Cathy Cassidy Competition, Puffin Marketing, Penguin Random House, 80 Strand, London WC2R 0RL

Here’s an example:


Dear Future Me,


I’m just writing to the future me! Hope you’re a popstar, just like I always wanted, and that you’re touring the world singing the best pop songs?


I also hope you’re still best friends with Mandy and Lou. Don’t ever forget about the shopping trips and the secrets we’ve shared.


Right now, I love reading, shopping and spending time with my friends and family. Do you still like reading – is your favourite book still Broken Heart Club?


When was the last time you visited Mum and took Simba for a walk? If you haven’t seen her for two weeks, then my advice would be to go round with some Custard Creams!


Love from Me x


Happy writing!
