In yesterday's post, I shared with you some information about Oregon Humanities' letter writing project. If you clicked through to the OH site, you may have read some of their suggestions for what participating Oregonians might write in their letters to a stranger.
OH suggests that the letter writers, "Fill a page, or maybe two. Write about yourself—What makes you who you are? Where do you live? What do you do? Where do you come from, what have you seen, and where are you going? What are your hopes and fears and desires? What brings you joy, and what brings sadness? Share a favorite story or a random memory. Be as bold as you dare."
Do you have other ideas about how to start off a penpal relationship? What do you write in a letter to someone you don't know? I'd love to hear your ideas!
