Writing Heartfelt Letters to Family Members

Loading Events

Sometimes it is easier to write than it is to talk, especially when dealing with sensitive issues involving family members. This workshop will explore when writing a letter might be appropriate and the best way to do it. Expressing love, concern, regret, compunction, gratitude, appreciation, or another highly charged feelings can be challenging. Participants will write drafts, share them with each other, discuss how to improve them and how to make them more effective and meaningful. Email, FaceTime, text messaging, and other communication technologies help families stay in touch, but they are no substitute for the longer, thoughtful, reflective letter between family members — letters which will be treasured by your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
