The Letter Q: Queer Writers' Letters to their Younger Selves


The letter Q is an extremely reliable, but redundant, letter. It doesnot make its own unique sound -- it makes the /kw/ sound as in ueen. This makes it a difficult letter for children to sound out.

Take a look at the picture of the cursive writing chart above with the lower case q underlined. The black shows what the letter should look like when standing alone. The red lines show how to connect to it from letters before it and letters after it. The letter Q can be tough to remember, so if you ever forget how to draw it just come back to this page for a reference.


Queen also begins with the letter Q

I’m including a list of all the (37) guy contributors who wrote a letter to their younger selves in the book, The Letter Q ~ (because the Table of Contents/Contributors directory is so often neglected in many online book descriptions & all are sorted here by first name). And if you want to read more about these guys, I’ve also added a book title w/regard to a Memoir or Biography (excluding any Novels or other Anthologies), if you choose to read further ~
