This Writer Began a Pen Pal Project in the Pandemic, Now 7,000 Are Bringing Joy to Strangers

The art of letter writing has been all but forgotten in this current age of instant communication. Between tweets, IMs, Instagram, Zoom, and the granddaddy of them all, email, the demands of our fast-paced world have rendered the quaint, antiquated, and frankly, slow form of missives dismissively known as “snail mail” all but obsolete. But thanks to the concerted efforts of New Yorker staff writer Rachel Syme, the pendulum may have begun to swing back in the opposite direction. Nice!
