Welcome to Social Correspondence. This site is dedicated to interpersonal communications, including the art of the written word.

The means by which we communicate are evolving. Handwritten letters, notes, diaries and invitations are being displaced by technology and electronic communications. In terms of speed and efficiency, texting and social media allow us to share information and thoughts in real time and to a broader audience.

But just as a beautifully designed and illustrated book remains a treasure, handwritten communications convey a greater intrinsic, historical, and personal value. Who does not like and appreciate a letter or note, handwritten and delivered in person or through the mail?

Social Correspondence, now in its fifth year, will continue to encourage letter writing, as well as the value of written and oral communication through news, literature, performance, and our everyday interactions with one another.

Reader comments, letters, and dialogue are always welcome. Suggested topics and/or proposed guest columns may be submitted to letters@socialcorrespondence.com.
