Penpal for the elderly or shut ins
I am a writer, both by trade and education. I especially love handwritten letters. I will write a personal letter, at least 2 pages long, on random topics or a topic you dictate, to a person of your choosing (or yourself!). It's always fun to get mail! Usually I'll talk a little about myself and where I live, but I can also get philosophical or chat about general pop culture. If the recipient would like to keep up the correspondence, we can discuss the arrangement. I can also send postcards if preferred.
Training & Qualifications
I have a degree in Rhetoric from the University of Illinois. Over the last 10 years I've been freelancing for legal newsletters, writing articles on healthcare reform, creating real estate ads and descriptions, and blogging. I've kept a journal since I was 5 years old and I'm an avid reader. I love the written word, and I still send handwritten letters and postcards.
