PEN TO PAPER: THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF LETTER WRITING
When was the last time you wrote a letter or postcard? In the age of text messages and emojis, picking up a pen is a revolutionary act. In this workshop we’ll opt out of our cultural addiction to immediacy and will craft communications—to others and to ourselves—that will provide a platform for exploration, gratitude, and connection.
Your words are important, made more so by writing them with your own hand. There are proven physiological, mental, and emotional benefits to picking up a pen. Using correspondence as our medium for discovery, we’ll walk through accessible written exercises. Materials will be provided (hello, stamps!) in case you choose to send off your words. We’ll even mail them for you.
