Latest Letter 

When was the last time you wrote or received a handwritten letter?

When was the last time you wrote or received a handwritten letter?

Josh Deal:
The last handwritten letter I wrote was to my ex-girlfriend about breaking up. From what I understand, it’s not proper to break up over a text, but Dear John letters are still cool!

Nick Clark:
I hand write letters to my wife about half as much as she writes them to me. What they are about is our own damned business.

Scott Renshaw: It may or may not have been something I sent to a right jolly old elf asking for something to be left in my stocking. We’ll just let that be between us.

John Paul Brophy:
As City Weekly’s oldest employee, it should come as no surprise that I am in handwritten (well, typewritten) correspondence with my brother as well as several friends. Life in general is the usual theme; odd news stories and clippings are often included.

Rachel Scott:
I wrote a handwritten letter to my wife for her birthday about a month ago. She wrote one to me shortly after we got engaged last New Year’s.

Pete Saltas: I made a vow never to hand write a letter unless I got to use a quill and a jar of ink.

Jackie Briggs: I wrote my parents a letter a few years back by hand. I didn’t think much of it. Then I came to visit them a year later and noticed it framed, mounted and displayed in their bedroom like it was an Oscar. I don’t kid myself and think that it was the beauty of my words that moved them, but you’d be surprised what a few handwritten words of gratitude will do. The permanently displayed misspellings and overuse of the word “amazing” are their own reward.
