A series of ‘letters to the editor’ on writing in the small hours. The letters relate how habits of writing shape what is written and reflect upon the processes of note taking, inscription, transcription, letter writing and playing a guitar. The letters are published with a series of ‘writing exercises’ and blank pages to be filled.

The Self-Illuminating Pen is a companion piece to Guitar! (Book Works, London).
