Letter's I'll Never Send is a compilation of first-person narratives, including letters, personal essays, poems, diary entries, postcards, and other genre-bending literary works, written by women or those who identify as such. This anthology captures us in our most fragile state and spotlights emotional ties or human experiences that we have all encountered, such as grief, trauma, family bonding, self-reflection, love, regret, and more.
Showcasing our individual journeys and varying circumstances, Letters I'll Never Send reveals how similar our lives actually are, and how we can combine our common experiences to form intangible and resonant connections, no matter the difference in age, location, gender, race or identity.
