Transcript

hi this is Laura Turner and today we’re
00:02
going to talk about how to write a
00:03
letter to a celebrity first of all you
00:06
have to figure out where you’re going to
00:07
send this letter most of the time if
00:09
you’re writing a letter to a band or
00:11
musician you’re going to be able to find
00:14
their fan club this is also sort of the
00:17
case with many celebrities so the avenue
00:21
that you should go through unless of
00:22
course you have the celebrities actual
00:24
address and telephone number because
00:26
you’re just that person who has that but
00:29
for the rest of us we’re actually going
00:31
to want to go to their official website
00:33
or locate their address for their fan
00:38
club in some other way so go ahead and
00:41
address the letter to the fan club
00:45
rather than you know to some address
00:49
that you think it’s correct but then go
00:51
ahead and write it to the celebrity you
00:54
never know maybe they will actually be
00:56
able to read your letter so in the
00:59
letter in the event that they actually
01:00
would read it do go ahead and tell them
01:04
why you admire them and why you’re
01:05
writing to them and what you would like
01:09
them to know about yourself next and we
01:14
all have our little obsessions with
01:15
celebrities think about your obsessions
01:19
with them and why you are so compelled
01:22
by them that you need to write to them
01:24
and tell them all these things and
01:25
possibly by writing your letter to the
01:27
celebrity you might actually be able to
01:29
work out some of that obsession you
01:31
might be able to actually you know get
01:33
it out tell them why you love them and
01:35
how great they are and that will be your
01:37
sort of cap onto that obsession so a
01:40
cathartic experience and then finally
01:43
request a reply there is somebody
01:47
reading these letters even if the
01:50
celebrity doesn’t actually get it into
01:52
their hands there is somebody who
01:53
receives them and does reply to them so
01:56
make sure that the person who’s reading
01:58
it knows that you know what you’re doing
02:00
and you want to reply and maybe whenever
02:03
they reply they’ll actually send you a
02:05
signed headshot from your celebrity so
02:09
good luck with writing that letter
