J.K. Rowling’s email to be archived alongside Wilde’s letters?

Curators of the British Library, “concerned that conventional letters are becoming increasingly rare as writers and scientists abandon paper for more perishable email,” have created a new digital archive to store email sent by literary figures, including former Poet Laureate Ted Hughes.

Other writers from whom the library would like to collect files include “J.K. Rowling, A.S. Byatt, Alastair Campbell and Stephen Hawking.”
