Join us for a lunch and fun filled workshop on letter writing. Lunch from Whispering Pines B&B and workshop led by Robin Rozanski, an artist in residence at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts.

Letter Writing: A Lost Art

When was the last time you got a letter—a real letter—that you knew you’d keep in a safe place? Whether it’s to pass along advice to your children as they grow, or to reconnect a friendship, a handwritten letter is satisfying in a way that email and text will never be. Heartfelt correspondence is truly a gift that keeps on giving. We’ll interweave the philosophical with the personal, take inspiration from both writer and recipient perspectives, and practice with writing prompts. You are encouraged to bring pen and paper (rather than a laptop) and any letters you might be thinking of replying to or ideas already in the works. Starting from scratch? Not a problem! For writers at all levels, including first-timers.

All you need is a pen and paper.

Robin Rozanski’s writing has appeared in A cappella Zoo, Thrice Fiction, Burrow Press Review, and elsewhere. She has an MA in creative writing from the University of Central Florida, and works as an instructional designer at Capella University. She was a 2015 recipient of the InterMedia Arts Beyond the Pure Fellowship. Her writing explores the depths of damaged mind-body connections, and the difficulty of confronting illness with mindful appreciation for life. Follow her on Twitter @RobinRozanski.

*We will require 4 persons to register by Wednesday, April 11 @ noon to hold the workshop. A full refund will be given at that time if there are not enough participants.
