Learn to craft different types of letter with local journalist Kimberly Bowker.

Putting pen to paper through written correspondence is how we have stayed in touch for centuries. Not only is it a way to connect, but crafting letters is also a means to remember, understand, honor, and record what is happening in our lives and world.

During this time of social distancing, explore how to contact friends and family through the traditional and creative way of writing letters (or emails, cards, posts, text messages, etc). This class considers different types of letter, ideas of what to include in your message, how to write an engaging letter, and examples of letters that have made a difference throughout time.

Kimberly Bowker is a narrative journalist who loves to explore stories of the heart and how our lives intertwine. Growing up in Central Oregon, she served at The Bulletin newspaper, and appreciates how writing can strengthen our community. Her work has appeared in local publications and sources such as 1859 Magazine,, Fodor's Travel, and Travel Oregon. Please say hi if you find her reading outside or out on the trail strolling beneath the sky – as this is where we all connect.
