Welcome to my website!
I’m Laura Kidd, a music producer, songwriter and digital polymath based in Bristol, UK, making music as Penfriend.

My mission is to encourage creativity in others by sharing my artistic process, plus thoughts on mindful productivity and digital minimalism, via my Letterbox Blog and weekly podcast series, “Attention Engineer”.


At the heart of the Penfriend project is The Correspondent’s Club, a generous, supportive and friendly community powering the making of all my new music, podcasts and videos.
