cave letters is a content development and literary seal-ring for both features and episodic work. Bespoke scripted fiction, both original and derivative.
It is a hatch, a backdoor, the absence of sunlight on an uncarpeted floor. It is an unused radio frequency. It is an upside-down hill where myriad characters come together to share the damage they bear. Until one of them finally opens the hatch, plunging into the pages within.
