BACK TO SCHOOL / ABIGAIL GURNEY READ
With September looming, for many that means back to school or back to work. We certainly have fond memories of our time going through the stationery shops to kit ourselves out with the coolest stationery to start the new school year with. We speak to our favourite Quill ladies to get their back to school story.
We speak to Abigail Gurney Read, editor at Because Magazine to get her back to school story:
Every year (without fail), I will inevitably have “forgotten" how to hold a pen… Six solid weeks of avoiding anything that even resembled writing (how times have changed!) often meant that my first day back would be spent reacquainting my fingers with the act of producing legible sentences. Given how often we’re all glued to our phones or computer keyboards these days, I sometimes wonder whether the affliction might be more common now than it was then.
