We conceived of an idea to introduce a community table where letters could be initiated while offering thoughts on how to form and fashion a letter as a gift to your recipient.
A writing table, chair, and writing supplies (including pens, paper, envelopes, and postage stamps) were to be centered within a semi-enclosed space, inviting inspiration from the sense of community surrounding the writer.
I love this project! Everyone acknowledges that everyone loves getting mail, and this project is fostering letter writing. If only more people wrote, knowing how much pleasure it brings!
Thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in your writing letters project. Since I first began having pen pals in the sixth grade I have enjoyed putting pen to paper – daily! Long may Letters Trellis last!
Thank you for your package of tips about letter writing. I still make an effort for birthdays, and I feel motivated (now) to do more. Best wishes!
What a marvelous project! I’ve written to our 3 year old grandson and await his response with the second letter enclosed to him. Thank you for this creative project.
We offer Letters Trellis as a shelter, real or imagined, in which to spend some moments creating the gift of a letter. We are excited to encourage this space for your written correspondence and you are welcome to send us a message about your experience.
