How to Write an Epistolary Story

At our last meeting Stephen read a story which was written in an epistolary style. For those who don’t know what epistolary style is here is the definition from Far Off Places who are presently ask for submissions in the style:

An epistolary novel is a novel written as a series of documents. The usual form is letters, although diary entries, newspaper clippings and other documents are sometimes used. Recently, electronic “documents” such as recordings and radio, blogs, and e-mails have also come into use.

If you fancy trying to write a story in an epistolary style then you’ll love this writing advice post!
